Music Victoria’s Live Music Professionals Program names its recipients for 2018

The Live Music Professionals program that has been established by the folk at Music Victoria have named the recipients of this year’s round; this group of industry individuals will be taking part in the professional and business developments program beneath the Victorian Government’s Music Works initiative.

Under the mentoring of reps from the likes of Deathproof PR, the Karova Lounge, 170 Russell, Sanicki Lawyers and more, participants will be given the opportunity to enhance and grow their skill sets within their field via a range of masterclasses and workshop sessions.

“I’m really excited with the response to Live Music Professionals applications this year.” Project Manager Sarah Deborre has said. “We had so many amazing applications from all over Victoria which demonstrates the massive need for a program like this. I’m buzzing from the overwhelming positive reactions from our successful candidates and I can’t wait to get the program started!”
