Turning Up the Illumination on…Me!
As a performing arts publicist, I promoted others. Promote myself? Welcome, stage fright.
Once upon a time, I was the Director of External Affairs for a regional orchestra. I publicized concerts, promoted artists, enticed the community to attend, and urged devoted patrons to ensure the health of the orchestra by becoming donors. (Ticket sales cover an astonishingly low percentage of orchestral costs.)
