Should I ever be lucky enough to find myself in a situation with a potential investor or partner, this is my tentative self-marketing strategy; my “elevator pitch”.
Hi, I’m Trevor Meagher, and I want to save the American identity. The reason American orchestras are struggling isn’t the economy; it’s the culture. We’re losing ourselves as a people because we’ve neglected our art. We need to cultivate a love of music with people; to show them that this isn’t stale or outdated; it’s a beautiful, GROWING world. The way to truly connect with an audience isn’t advertising or gimmicks, it’s through the heartfelt honesty of performers themselves. We need to use every ounce of our energy and passion to forge a path into our audiences’ hearts, to share our music and ourselves. An artist bears the privilege of stewarding humanity’s souls. I can do that; I can be such a steward. Here’s my card.
