Profiles In Innovation: Claire Chase

Please join President Aoun for an illuminating conversation with flute virtuoso Claire Chase, an artist, activist, and MacArthur Foundation "genius grant" winner who launched the world-renowned International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE) -- an extraordinary group dedicated to reshaping the way music is created and experienced.

Chase’s talk, “Debunking, Disrupting & Rethinking Entrepreneurship: Inside the ICE Model, will profile ICE musicians and reveal how they turned initial failures into entrepreneurial opportunities.

The event will also showcase the talents of Northeastern's own student artists, including a pre-event performance by student musicians in the Curry Student Center Ballroom, and a post-event reception in McLeod Suites featuring music, art and sculpture.

Don’t miss this exciting discussion about the intersection of music, innovation, and entrepreneurship —and the unexpectedly transformative power of failure.
