Attendees joined GRAMMY Award-winning composer Maria Schneider for an intriguing conversation about her boundary-pushing musical career and arts activism, moderated by George Mason University Antonin Scalia Law School Professor and Arts & Entertainment Advocacy Clinic Director Sandra Aistars. Part of Schneider’s engagement as a Mason Artist-in-Residence with the Center for the Arts, the event was co-hosted by Mason’s Center for Intellectual Property x Innovation Policy (C-IP²) and Arts Management Program. The conversation provided a unique opportunity to hear from Schneider on topics including the complexity of her composition process, the blending of her art and activism, and insights for both musicians and music lovers to understand the significance of copyright protection to an artist’s work.
