Millicent’s podcast to help you find your way in the music industry is back for season 2. This time, she gives the microphone to prominent voices of the area, from producers to performers, singers, musicians and more, so they can share their knowledge and unveil some secrets to boost your career.
Anything can happen on stage and, as performers, we must be prepared! However, sometimes things go wrong no matter how hard you think about every possible inconvenience ahead of time. That’s the case of the Taiwanese-Australian violinist star Ray Chen during a concert in Brussels some years ago. Oops!
The podcast “Success Beyond The Score” is back for a second season in which prominent voices of the field will join Millicent for in-depth interviews! First episode airs on Monday 15th February.
February is Black History Month, which reminded us of the talk Millicent gave for the Active Wellbeing Society last year, during the same occasion. Let’s get inspired together by her journey and the tips she gaves us from her perspective!
On Thursday 21st January, representatives from the Musicians Union, the British Film Institute, the British Council and members of the House of Lords had a meeting in which they discussed the new conditions Brexit imposes over the entertainment industry, among other things like why the UK decided not to look into a renewal of participation in the Creative Europe programme.
The Snapshots Music and Art Foundation interviewed Carol Kaye in 2013. During the one hour long talk, she opened up and offered invaluable knowledge that turned the conversation into a secret masterclass.
It is not easy to define the sense of spectacle in classical music. Precision and speed are always a thing of wonder, yes, but the musician cannot leave the act of performing, of giving a character to the interpretation, behind. Yuja Wang knows this very well, and it shows every time she sits in front of her piano.
Tune in to http://www.affinityxtra.com tomorrow between 12PM and 1PM to listen to the segment of Millicent’s podcast, “Success Beyond The Score”, about livestreaming equipment and noise cancellation, which are essential to work as a musician from home and get an income online.
With a monumental change that is Brexit, a lot of questions and fears arise in regards of the possibility to keep gigging and working as a musician within the European Union. Conditions keep shifting and some bitter surprises appear on the way —such as the rejection by UK government of the EU offer to allow visa-free travel to touring musicians—, so the first step is to prepare in advance as comprehensively as you can.
2020 is over and we sincerely hope you all could wrap it up in the best possible way. For this year 2021, we plan on keeping up all our virtual projects to support you in your musical journey, and in regards of that, we would like you to do a little exercise.
