Columbia Opportunity Resource Connects Musicians to Business Leaders
Columbia Opportunity Resource (COR) presents Music Break, Wednesday, Sept. 3 at Music Farm Columbia. Music Break connects local musicians with business leaders for a unique evening of networking and entertainment.

The free workshop is hosted by a panel of industry professionals from 5-6 p.m. Musicians will learn how to book a show, record an album and promote a band. Moderated by Marty Fort, owner of the Columbia Arts Academy, panelists include: Jay Matheson, Jam Room Recording Studio; Trae Judy, Music Farm LLC; Dave Britt, Rosewood Merchants Association; and Blake Arambula, Death of Paris.
Music Break showcases local musicians in a variety of genres, featuring FatRat Da Czar, Death of Paris and Lazy A and the Green Thang. Networking begins at 5:30 p.m. and entertainment begins at 6 p.m. The after party featuring Josh Roberts and the Hinges begins at 8 p.m.
Admission is free for musicians and COR members, and $20 for the general public. Guests only attending the after party may enter for $10. Tickets are available at www.ourcor.org/music-break/
