Join Polyphonic.org for a live interview and discussion with Nancy Christensen, Founder and President of Christensen Arts, LLC, an artist management firm based in New York City.

We will get Nancy’s expert thoughts on these questions. We will also talk with Nancy about her career path, how she developed her career in artist management, and what advice she has for aspiring artist managers.
