The South Main Association is having their monthly meeting on Tuesday, November 12th. It will be held at The Blues Foundation, at 421 South Main Street.
The featured speaker is Mei-Ann Chen. An innovative and passionate force both on and off the conductor’s podium, Mei-Ann Chen is one of America’s most dynamic young conductors. Music Director of the Memphis Symphony since 2010 and of the Chicago Sinfonietta since 2011, she has infused both orchestras with energy, enthusiasm and high-level music-making, galvanizing their audiences and communities alike.
I have seen Mei-Ann in concert and she is amazing to say the least. I cannot wait to hear her speak.
Additionally, the South Main Association meetings are a great place to meet professionals who live downtown. In fact, in 2006, I found a job during a SMA meeting! The lesson is: always bring your business cards.
The event begins with networking at 6:00 PM. At 6:30 PM, the speaker and program will begin. The cost is $10 for guests. There will be complimentary appetizers and a cash bar.
