Live Entertainment Management Projects Provide Real-World Music Production Experience

Each year, the Live Entertainment Management program adopts a school-wide project at the Frost School of Music and across the University of Miami with a broad scope that covers all areas of live event planning, budgeting, pre-production, rehearsal, and production logistics, stage management, lighting, audio and technical support, marketing (social media, web, and print) as well as assisting with artist relations, sponsorships, development, marketing, ticketing, box office and more.

Pinecrest Gardens (2021)

The students of the Live Entertainment Management program, in collaboration with FROST SOUNDS, a student-run presenting committee, presented talented musicians in a beautiful setting on March 4 & 5, 2021. The host—Pinecrest Gardens—is one of the most lovely Florida venues for live music. Frost students created, marketed, managed, and made possible two spectacular evenings of music.

Experiential learning is an essential element of the Live Entertainment Management degree program and taking on the full spectrum of tasks in putting these concerts together is what learning at the University of Miami is all about.

"In my many years of concerts at Pinecrest Gardens, I have never had a more memorable experience. The musicians were spectacular, but even more, the many students I saw working the make it a special evening were so welcoming and professional. Thank you for a memorable night of music.”

E. Blanche, patron, sending a note congratulating the students.

Dancing Glass (2018)

"Dancing Glass” is an example of an exemplary project designed and presented in a collaborative, creative environment. The work was premiered in 2018, with additional performances thereafter. Live Entertainment graduate students have the opportunity to create projects that not only enhance their professional skills but strengthens their resumes, too.
