Best Laid Plans: when things go wrong

On stage or in the studio, musicians work hard to make sure that everything goes perfectly. But it never does. We can create powerful, moving musical experiences for audiences but there are always things that go wrong. At best, no one (besides us) notices.

On this panel, we’ll hear from three musicians with a huge range of musical experiences, including a number of less-than-ideal ones. They’ll share their stories about what went wrong, how they fixed it (or didn’t), and what they learned from the process.
