Performing Arts Administration Alumni Council Hosts Alumni-Student Mixer

The Performing Arts Administration program celebrated the reboot of its alumni network at an informal alumni-student mixer on April 21, 2016, at the Education Building on the Washington Square campus.

Hosted by the newly formed Performing Arts Administration Alumni Council, almost 60 attendees, a mix of current students and alumni spanning the classes of 1981 through 2018, joined the event. The outstanding alumni professionals who attended the mixer were from leading organizations in various disciplines such as the Metropolitan Opera, Lincoln Center, American Dance Institute, The New Victory Theater, Paul Taylor's American Modern Dance, Korean Cultural Center, Sheffield Global Arts Management, Morahan Arts and Media, and Momentum Artists Management.

The crowd also had the pleasure of having some current faculty members attend including professors Brann Wry, Gary Himes, and Tim McClimon.

“Over the past few months, Jeremy Leung, who’s graduating this May, and I have been spearheading a launch of a renewed alumni network. We are delighted that many have come to meet old and new alumni friends. The turnout of this event confirms the great demand amongst alumni and students of the program for an avenue to connect with one another,” said Minji Kim, Class of 2013 and lead of the working group for the Alumni Council.

With this social event as a starter, the alumni council plans to create a variety of opportunities for alumni to connect with each other and with current students, and to cultivate an environment in which alumni members can find collaborators, build a professional network, share resources, and exchange career tips.
