Event Director

Joe Mason

Joe left the corporate world of training business professionals to pursue a passion of creating opportunities for young musicians.  He believes the future is built by preparing students to become tomorrow’s leaders.  This can be accomplished through giving them opportunities which introduce them to the world where their circles of influence are expanded.  Sharing the chances to be part of something bigger than themselves becomes another step towards a brighter future.  These opportunities have included performing in stadiums from the Olympics, to sold out Bowl Games, to grand halls like the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, to stages on Broadway.
