Arts Enterprise at UW-Madison

A new partnership has been launched between UW-Madison and the Bach Dancing & Dynamite Society called Arts Enterprise, a program at UW-Milwaukee that gives young artists the career skills necessary to become leaders in today's cultural environment. The program is led by Stephanie Jutt, Artistic Director of BDDS and Professor of Flute at UW–Madison, in partnership with BDDS Executive Director, Samantha Crownover. Stephanie and I have performed together in Madison, and after being impressed by her work with BDDS, I'm excited to hear about this new venture.

Planned activities include music entrepreneurship courses, a student-led organization and a new venture contest.

They will hold their first ever Arts Enterprise Symposium in Madison from Jan 30-Feb 1. Speakers include Angela Myles Beeching and Gary Beckman, both of whom I was able to work with at the Brevard Conference on Music Entrepreneurship.
