PAA participants will work with leading faculty from the University of Delaware's Music Management Program and Lerner College of Business and Economics as well as New York University's world-renowned Performing Arts Administration Program.
Students will spend their time engaging in daily lectures, team projects, and round table discussions. They will also prepare a final presentation, which will be presented to all festival attendees, faculty artists, and audience members. Additionally, PAA participants will gain valuable networking opportunities with prominent performing artists and administrators of prestigious organizations.
