A professional music career evolves over the lifetime of a musician, often in surprising and unpredictable ways. Most musicians combine various jobs or professions both to support their immediate lifestyle and to realize a fulfilling long-term career. Prospective undergraduate students and families are invited to join Brittany Jimenez, Associate Director for Undergraduate Admission, for a discussion about why you are not crazy for pursuing music in the 21st century.
