Please join us for the third of Cabrillo VAPA’s CrossTalks, a Zoom storytelling series about careers in creative arts and design .

Our third speaker is Dr. David Cutler, Director of Music Entrepreneurship, University of South Carolina

Dr. David Cutler is a pianist and composer equally comfortable with classical, jazz, popular, folk and world music. Stretching what it means to be a performer, events regularly involve crazy antics: extreme eclecticism, choreography, humor, interdisciplinary collaboration, superhero costumes, character ushers, celebrity cameos, kazoo playing marching bands, you name it. In his varied roles as educator, arranger, conductor, collaborator, concert producer, author, blogger, consultant, speaker, advocate and entrepreneur, he works to push boundaries while connecting with new audiences.
