Pitch Perfect! STF Workshop 1: Creating Music - March 6th at IMRO

Do you want to know how best to pitch your ideas to organisations, publishers, agents, radio stations, newspapers? Sounding the Feminists (STF), with the generous sponsorship of IMRO, are initiating a series of workshops for female, trans, and non-binary artists on how to make a place for themselves in music. Through a series of informal workshops on Creating Music, Performing Music, Writing about Music, and dealing with Communications and PR, participants and experienced presenters will discuss the realities of how a musical artist can and should interact with organisations to promote their work.

Our first workshop on Creating Music will take place on March 6th from 4-7pm at IMRO. STF have a stellar line-up of guest speakers from the worlds of classical, jazz, opera, and pop musics ready to fill you in on how to pitch your creative ideas successfully so that you can make the type of work that you want to make, which includes:

Gráinne Mulvey - Composer and Educator

Hard Rain Ensemble - Contemporary Music Ensemble, represented by Greg Caffrey, Artistic Director

Irish National Opera - Opera Company, represented by Diego Fasciati, Executive Director

Jess Kavanagh - Vocalist and Lead Singer of Barq

Ríona Sally Hartman - Vocalist, Composer, and Board Member of Improvised Music Company 

Equally, STF and our guest-speakers are eager to hear from you, the solo artist, on what type of creative spaces and support you need to create your best work. This will be an informal workshop/discussion, facilitated by STF, where Guest-Speakers and audience members have the chance to engage in a welcoming and supportive environment. We look forward to seeing you there!
