A study of vocal improvisation based on pentatonic scales. Improvised concert session that engages the audience and stimulates the creative thinking. What are the commonalities between creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship? Does musical education affect the development of entrepreneurial features?
The panel is lead by Agata Kulis with the support of the Boss RC 505 loop station and is combined with a lecture on connection between entrepreneurship and creativity. Agata is a singer-songwriter, a former student of the prestigious Berklee College of Music (Boston, USA) as an international scholarship recipient. Her musical education began in Krakow, Poland – at the St. Wiechowicz Music School, where she studied piano; and the M. Karłowicz Secondary Music School, as a classical voice major. A graduate of Jagiellonian University, Agata also studied music at the John Paul II Pontifical University – both institutions in Krakow.
She has won, among others, the European Tour/ Berklee College of Music Scholarship (2013), the Berklee International Grant (2014) and the Award of Radio Ramp Listeners, New York (2015). Over the years she has performed in Poland, Europe, Africa and the United States. Her album “Come a little closer” aims at bringing together various classic repertoire within the Jazz / R & B genres. Agata’s time at Berklee College of Music has seen her participate in many notable events – the Newport Folk Festival, Singers Showcase: 100 Years of Popular Music, and Vocal Jazz Festival to name a few – while juggling regular performances on her own agenda.
