Independent distributor Symphonic Distribution will be hosting its first Music Industry Sessions in Puerto Rico from February 22-23, 2019.

Music Industry Sessions is a series of events aimed towards artists, producers, and singer-songwriters from the independent music community.

The first event will consist of a VIP event, PRO Music Industry Sessions, for established music industry professionals on Friday, February 22 at the new Santurcia Hotel and Bar.

Following that is the core Music Industry Sessions event on February 23 which will be held at the Conservatory of Music of Puerto Rico.

The panels will feature professionals in digital music services, A&R, marketing companies, music producers, and record label executives.

Speakers confirmed for the event so far include Marcos Ju├írez, Head Of Latin Music at Pandora; Bryant Pine, Director, Latin Music Programming at Siriusxm and others.

The educational event will be followed with a live music showcase, Symphonic Live, at La Respuesta in Santurce and will feature independent artists like Calma Carmona, Andrea Cruz, Los Walters, Rafa Pabon, and Nutopia.

“I feel confident that the wealth of information our panels will bring a value to this community that will resonate for years to come.”

Janette Berrios, Director of Corporate Marketing said: “We feel that as Latinos and as a company composed of Puerto Ricans, we have a responsibility to be present in this market.

“We’re proud and passionate about this explosion of music with a wealth of genres and subgenres that’s coming from the island. We believe there’s an incredible potential here that has not yet been fulfilled.

“I feel confident that the wealth of information our panels will bring a value to this community that will resonate for years to come.”

Added Berrios: “Talent, creativity, culture and the spirit of progress and work are here in Puerto Rico.

“We simply want to give the tools and platform to this community to take control of their music and their destiny.”

In May last year Symphonic hired former Orchard exec Nick Gordon and Jaime Feldman, who previously worked at Universal Music, in the US. 

In September the US-based company bolstered its marketing team with three new senior hires in its Brooklyn office.Music Business Worldwide
