A group of budding music biz characters in CofC’s Arts Management department formed Seventeen70 earlier this year as part of their Getting Music to the Marketplace class. “We are committed to educating students in the music business and supporting local music,” says Heather McDonald, the professor of the class. “There are 21 students who worked together to select a single to release and book and promote this show. The record company is thrilled to be working with Will.”
Seventeen70 will continue next semester with a new group of students releasing a new single. Billed as the Pre-Exam Jam, Seventeen70’s Music Farm event will take place on Mon. Dec. 5 at 8 p.m. with live performances from Hastings, Old You, Master, and Shields and Morgan (featuring members of Long Miles). Admission is $5.
