York College will host a music industry panel discussion at 7:30 p.m., Nov. 10, in Weinstock Lecture Hall, Willman Business Center. A 7 p.m. reception will precede the event, which is open to the public free of charge. 

The music industry is constantly evolving. New technology creates an ever-changing paradigm, leaving business and legal experts struggling to keep pace. Both students and professionals must remain current and forward-thinking as they attempt to navigate the new landscape. What is the future of popular music? How will music be produced and consumed in the next 10 years? What about copyright, licensing, and other sectors of the entertainment industry? 

The panel of experts, who will discuss music publishing, live events, and the record industry, will include Chad Taylor, founding member and guitarist for rock band LIVE; David Sestak, founder of Media Five Entertainment and manager for the bands LIVE and Fuel; Anne Sturm, a 2013 York College graduate who is general manager of the Strand-Capitol Performing Arts Center; and Brad Prendergast, senior counsel for licensing and enforcement, SoundExchange, Inc.
