650 AM WSM is hosting Music City Mentors on March 23, an event that will pair entertainment professionals with individuals who dream of a career in the music industry. Taking place at the Factory at Franklin, this inaugural event will provide music education and professional development opportunities to aspiring music professionals ages 15 and over.
The day will feature 45-minute sessions focusing on songwriting, artist management, tour life, publicity and everything in between. SVP Artists Relations and Grand Ole Opry GM, Sally Williams, will give the keynote address. Attendees will conclude the day of unique professional development with “speed networking” opportunities from best-in-the-business professionals. Throughout the day participants will also have the opportunity to take part in a job fair featuring local venues, companies and entertainment employers. Attendees should plan to dress in business casual attire.
“It’s extremely important for us to invest in the next generation of industry professionals,” shared Chris Kulick, General Manager of 650 AM WSM. “We hope this is just the beginning of this chapter and finding new ways to mentor and engage young professionals.”
Discounted admission is available at wsmonline.com for $20.00 until Feb. 15 when ticket prices increase to $40.00. Lunch tickets will be available for purchase when registering.
“WSM has been a staple of the music community here in Franklin and there’s no better organization to connect music professionals with those aspiring to get into business,” said Ellie Westman Chin, President & CEO of Visit Franklin.
