& Professionals for the Arts (VLPA)
This panel is presented in partnership with Justice for Our Neighbors and will cover the ins and outs of immigration for musicians. Attorneys Linda Rose and Doug Russo, both musicians themselves, focus their practice on immigration for musicians. This will not be a hum-drum panel; it will be fast-paced, fun, AND informative. An excellent program for lawyers, law students, musicians, and music industry people, it will cover various temporary visas for musicians, exceptions to the rules, the definition of “work,” impact of a showcases, requirements for a “green card,” and other immigration issues faced by musicians, their managers, and their band members.
