The House of Blues Music Forward Foundation is working to recruit music's next generation of professionals with free All Access Fest job fairs across the country this month. The program is returning for its second year and will take place in Chicago, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Orlando and New Orleans.
"We are thrilled to present our second annual All Access Fest for youth interested in music careers -- on and off stage -- and pleased to be able to offer the job fair in Orlando for the first time this year," said Music Forward Foundation executive director Nurit Siegel Smith in a statement. "This unique program offers young people from under-represented communities free resources and networking opportunities to help them navigate a career in music."
All Access Fest was launched in 2018 by House of Blues at its venues. While the charity itself is aimed at youth 12-22 from undeserved communities, the job fair specifically targets a 16-22 demographic considering a career path.
