Since the frequency of my posting here is so stunningly high, I thought it was time to seek out a new forum for my thoughts (and I use the term loosely).
Kidding aside, this week I’m excited to be a guest panelist on Amanda Ameer’s blog at ArtsJournal.com. Amanda, a publicist, has invited four of us from different sides of the musical world to discuss the 21st century expectation that artists distinguish themselves in ways not directly connected to their art. Is this good or bad? Relevant or irrelevant to the art itself? Contributing to the concert experience or detracting from it?
Interesting questions, I think. My initial post can be found here, Amanda’s blog, with all of posts on this topic (plus all of her other posts) here. I think things should get interesting: stay tuned.
