Veteran concert promoters to speak

The UGA Libraries and the Terry College of Business will host a question-and-answer program with Alex Cooley and Peter Conlon, veteran concert promoters and founders of Atlanta’s Music Midtown, on Jan. 15 at 2 p.m. in the auditorium of the Richard B. Russell Building Special Collections Libraries.

Conlon and Cooley will be interviewed by Lisa Love and Tom Beard. Love was formerly with the Georgia Music Hall of Fame and now serves as director of music marketing and development for the state of Georgia. She also is the founding editor of Georgia Music Magazine and is a member of the Country Music Association and the National Association of Recording Industry Professionals. Beard served as deputy assistant to the president under Jimmy Carter and is a longtime personal friend of Conlon and Cooley.

This event, co-hosted by the Georgia Music Foundation and the UGA Music Business Program of the Terry College, is open free to the public. The conversation will be recorded and archived at UGA’s special collections libraries.
