As multi-talented Berklee alumni you're encouraged to say "yes" to every opportunity and have a specialized skillset. So, how do you actually make this seemingly conflicting advice work for your career?

Join the Berklee Los Angeles alumni community as we gather and learn more from Grammy Award-winning and fellow Berklee alumnus Keith Harris '98 as he shares his journey from gospel drumming on the south side of Chicago to stadium tours with the Black Eyed Peas to producing and writing for major pop acts. Harris, who is currently in production for the Backstreet Boys' “Backstreet Boys: Larger Than Life” residency show at the Axis at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas, will be interviewed by Music Production & Engineering senior faculty member Richard Mendelson.

The featured discussion between Harris and Mendelson will be followed by a Berklee Today cover release party hour and include a taco bar by HomeGirl Catering.
