Katelyn Drozd of Atlantic Records made music with artist Saul Paul before a talk given by WP professors Marcone & Philp.
Students booked and hosted radio shows/podcasts with execs from Pandora and Atlantic Records.
Professor Philp and a bunch of students watched some great music on Broadway.  Don’t worry.  They always look this pix-elated.
20+ students went to Music Biz 2017 last year. They were happy.
