Radio Summer Camp – The Symosium

Saturday, August 21st: MSOE’s Student Life and Campus Center (1025 N Broadway Ave), 9:30am – 6:00pm

As an extension of our Radio Summer Camp music festival, WMSE has gathered a group of people to help you, the Milwaukee musician, learn how to, well, be a better band or musician. You’ll walk away with a better idea how to market yourself, license your music, book a tour, record your music and much, much more.

Whether you are a high-school band student looking to understand your future possibilities as a professional musician, a 25 year-old in a rock band or anyone of any age looking to learn more about the ins and outs of being a professional musician, the Radio Summer Camp Symposium should provide you with some answers.

The Symposium will be held convention style, with breakout sessions delving into topics such as developing band and brand identity, licensing, recording, booking and touring, financial planning, careers in music beyond playing in a band and more. These break-out sessions will be followed by a key note address from Milwaukee legend Victor DeLorenzo, who, if you have been under a rock for the last 30 years, is most well-known for being the drummer for The Violent Femmes. Victor, though, is still an active and important part of the Milwaukee music community.

We’re asking that if you plan to attend the Symposium that you pre-register. Again, it’s a free event; we simply want to know how many people to expect. Pre-register here and make sure to answer the question, “What do you hope to learn from The Symposium?”
