An accomplished string trio will be the centerpiece of Indianapolis’ World Intellectual Property Day event that will explore how legal issues connect with the art and business of the music world.
“Time for IP: World IP Day in Indianapolis” will take place April 27 at the Hilbert Circle Theater, 45 Monument Circle. Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra resident ensemble Time for Three will perform and discuss legal challenges involving each piece.
The event is sponsored by the ISO and Faegre Baker Daniels LLP. Tickets are $35 and the program is approved for continuing legal education credit. More details and registration information are available here
Faegre partner Amie Peele Carter and Doug Yerkeson are presenters as is Michael Runyan, composer and former ISO principal librarian.
Carter said World IP Day events this year are themed around music, particularly the legal challenges the industry and musicians face as technology evolves. The local event will have limited seating on the Hilbert Theater stage.
“The actual setting is going to be acoustically optimal,” Carter said. “It’s a wonderful way to experience music as we learn about copyright law, the music industry and business, and how they interact.”
Time for Three is described as a genre-defying, high-energy string trio comprised of violinist Zach De Pue, violinist Nick Kendall and double-bassist Ranaan Meyer. The event program says the trio performs music from Bach to Brahms and beyond, creating ingenious arrangements that draw on bluegrass, folk and rock.
