Performances that integrate musical and non-musical components are becoming increasingly popular. These adventurous projects are often artistically satisfying—but are they viable in the arts marketplace? How do artists sell an interdisciplinary project to presenters? How do presenters sell it to their audiences? What are the unique elements and challenges of putting these programs on? This session will respond to these and other critical questions, and work towards developing a common language around this work.
