The Balancing Act: Pursuing the Stability of a Varied Career
Sam Krall, Syracuse University
Having a career in music today often involves juggling many simultaneous forms of employment. This mix evolves and shifts throughout any career, but careful planning and decision-making can help ensure that healthy artistic development isn’t left by the wayside. This session will focus on how today’s musicians can proactively attend to the balance of their various work opportunities for maximum professional and artistic benefit.
Sam Krall leads the development of new career programming for creative and performing artists at Syracuse University, where he designs programs, courses, and advising services focusing on career sustainability. A graduate of the Eastman School of Music, Krall remains an active performer, and in 2015 completed Syracuse University’s MA in Arts Leadership.
