On behalf of our Partners, Sponsor, Panelists and Participants we would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to everyone who came out and supported The Midatlantic Music Conference this year! Tremendous panels, awesome performances and tons of networking! Thank You to my partners Kysii L Ingram, Glen M Hicks Jr. and their families for all of their hard work and dedication!
To our panelists and performers who traveled from as far away as Canada, Los Angeles, New York, Florida, Virginia, Maryland, Wisconsin, Boston and all over the Carolinas…Thank You as well your support of our efforts! Panelists and presenters representing more than 25 music, film and digital media companies provided invaluable insight into our ever changing world of music and entertainment. Your participation validates what we have been saying since 2002, that our region has industry resources comparable to those you will find in any major city in the world!
We are looking forward 2014 as we re-launch and re-brand with new partners, new ideas and new opportunities! Look forward to more details in the coming months as we continue to work together to build a better music industry for musicians!
Support Local, Live Music!!!
Here are some excellent quotes we received from some of our participants:
“In an era where the music business is evolving at breakneck speed and uncertainty abounds, the Midatlantic Music Conference constructs an intersection of opportunity and ideas with a wealth of industry professionals and new talent at hand. It was refreshing to learn how much larger and more promising the music world is than I had known. I got to make some valuable connections and introduce myself and WNCW to people I would not have met without the MAMC.”
- Joe Kendrick, WNCW, Midday Host, Producer, CMJ Programmer and Volunteer Coordinator
“The Mid-Atlantic Music Conference is far more than killer performances by local artists and musicians or an opportunity to network with music industry professionals; it’s about educational empowerment and fostering community. These are the elements that allow the proverbial starving artist to thrive at his craft and build a sustainable music ecosystem so that his life’s passion isn’t reduced to merely a hobby.”
–Sahpreem A. King, Multi-Platinum Music Producer/Songwriter, Music Industry Author
The Mid-Atlantic Music Conference & Festival captures the spirit of the region’s music and creative communities in a way that no other conference could. It was an honor for me to be included with the diverse croup of industry veterans who shared their wisdom and expertise, and showed their commitment to helping artists move their careers forward. And musically, the showcases were a treat, spotlighting the high level of talent the region produces.
