Professional Concerns


When: Tuesday, July 5th, at 2:15pm.
Venue: The Grove Hotel
Presented by Peggy Evans

What does "professional" mean?
I play at St. Swithan's and I'm paid $4.99 for lunch every other week. Am I a professional?
I play at the Cathedral of the Great Green Mountains and get free housing, a salary of $250,000/month, and play the 5 minute prelude at the Sunday 11:30 AM service. Am I a professional?

How does "development" fit in?
I develop my concert repertoire during church services. Do I fit in?
I develop my knitting during services. Do I fit in?

Seriously, we'll look at what makes us professionals, regardless of our employment situation, and how and what we should be developing professionally.
