The School of Music organises a series of career talks each Spring semester. These are open to music students at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. Guests speakers talk about their career and answer questions about their particular profession. Topics range from the music business, orchestral management, broadcasting, freelance composition and performance and much more.
Talks take place on Tuesday lunchtimes from 13.10 - 14.00, in the Boyd Lecture Theatre of the main School of Music building.
All undergraduates and postgraduates welcome.
