Music Industry Summit

Tuesday, March 10th, 2020 7:07 PM

In light of Ohio University’s announcement today to suspend in-person instruction through March 30th, we are sad to announce that the 3rd Annual Ohio University Music Industry Summit and FINNEAS performance, scheduled for March 26, 2020, have been cancelled. 
We fully expect and intend to come with another amazing lineup and we appreciate the support shown for this event. For FINNEAS ticket holders, you can expect a follow up email from OU Performing Arts.

The Third Annual Ohio University Music Industry Summit will take place on Thursday, March 26, 2020. The Summit features an exclusive gathering of national and regional music industry leaders and artists for a day of informative panels and compelling interviews, a networking meet-up for panelists and registrants, and an evening showcase of music.
