Pitch Perfect! STF Workshop 2: Performing Music – April 4th at IMRO

Do you want to know how best to pitch your ideas to organisations, publishers, agents, radio stations, newspapers? Sounding the Feminists (STF), with support from IMRO, are initiating a series of workshops for female, trans, and non-binary artists on how to make a place for themselves in music. Through a series of informal workshops on Creating Music, Performing Music, Writing about Music, and dealing with Communications and PR, participants and experienced presenters will discuss the realities of how a musical artist can and should interact with organisations to promote their work.

The second workshop on Performing Music will take place on Thursday, April 4th from 4-7pm at IMRO. STF have a stellar line-up of guest speakers from the worlds of classical, contemporary, pop, and live/performance art, ready to fill you in on how to pitch your creative ideas successfully so that you can make the type of work that you want to make, this includes:

– Angela Dorgan, CEO of First Music Contact and Hard Working Class Heroes Festival.
– Elizabeth Hilliard, vocalist and founder of Béal, vocalist with Chamber Choir Ireland & more.
– Lynnette Moran, Festival Director of Live Collision Festival
– Deirdre Moynihan, Programmes Manager from Music Network

Equally, STF and the guest speakers are eager to hear from you, on what type of performative spaces and support you need to reach your performance goals. This will be an informal workshop/discussion, facilitated by STF, where guest speakers and audience members can engage in a welcoming and supportive environment. We look forward to seeing you there!
