Quote: “During my sophomore year at Eastman, I realized that I did not want to pursue a full-time career as a performing musician. The Arts Leadership Program was transformational for me, because it enhanced my world-class Eastman experience, provided me with the foundation and resources to pursue a career in business and prepared me to be an effective advocate for arts organizations”
