Posted By on Tue, Oct 22, 2013 at 11:25 AM

The Stax Music Academy and the Berklee City Music Network are hosting a conference, master classes, and a concert at Minglewood Hall. “American Popular Music, The Untold Story II: Excellence and Access” is a conference that runs October 28-30th at the Westin with the concert on Monday the 28th at Minglewood Hall.

The conference focuses on music education for students in underserved communities and brings a list of interesting participants including school administrators, representatives of the National Endowment for the Arts, the Generosity Network, and a member of the Saturday Night Live band.

The concert will double as a master class in which Memphis’ Grammy-winning sax phenom Kirk Whalum and Broadway star Shoshana Bean will offer critiques to five groups representing Memphis and other cities participating in the Berkelee City Music Network, a non-profit that has awarded scholarships to more than 1,200 students.

Rob Lewis, the music director for Toni Braxton, Christina Aguilerra, Babyface, New Kids on the Block, and others, will conduct the concert’s final song. The concert starts at 7 p.m. It is open to the public and costs $10.
