Despite having more than 40 years of industry experience managing clients including The Rolling Stones, Michael Jackson and Aerosmith, Green never planned to work in the music industry.“Nothing ever made me think about anything to do with being in music,” said Green, who studied business at Queen’s College. “I always wanted to be the fashion editor of Vogue magazine. I wanted to be Anna Wintour.”Lyman, best known for founding the Vans Warped Tour and revolutionizing event promotion, got his start in live production by organizing events to raise money for his school’s ski team when he was a student at California Polytechnic University, Pomona.Lyman has spent 24 years producing Vans Warped Tour, a “punk rock summer camp” that has featured artists such as Eminem, Blink-182 and Katy Perry. After completing the festival’s final year in August, Lyman is ready to pass on his knowledge to the next generation of event producers and create long term relationships and impact on students.“With [the Vans] Warped Tour we sell over 550,000 tickets, and I have contact with people for very short-term bases out here,” Lyman said. “[As] a Trojan Family member teacher, I get to spend 15 weeks in the class with people really digging deep and help them find their way.”Green fell in love with USC when her son attended the University but it wasn’t until she got a call from a Thornton adjunct professor and friend that she became excited about joining the school as a professor. “Now I have the job,” Green said. “Like everything in my life, it wasn’t planned.”Since he was in college, Kevin Lyman has been involved in live production, and will continue to work with event producers at USC Thornton. Photo courtesy of Lisa Johnson.Green became involved with the music industry after her initial job in public relations in fashion led her to work at Apple Records — a job that was supposed to be temporary while she searched for an opportunity in fashion. When she was eventually offered a fashion position, she turned it down.“You’ve got to love what you do, and you won’t know until you test it out,” Green said. “I didn’t know I loved management until I tried it out. I’ve done all the record company stuff. That wasn’t something I wanted to do.”Green went on to work for Crunch promotions, Fly Records, Gibson and Stromberg and founded her own company, Trudy Management Group. This fall, she will teach a master’s class on live touring in addition to two undergraduate courses. Both Green and Lyman are joining the music industry program to prepare students for what they call a rapidly evolving music industry. Thornton dean Robert Cutietta says their impressive careers and experience are a good fit for the Trojan Family.“We are thrilled to welcome Trudy and Kevin to the USC Thornton faculty,” Cutietta said in a Thornton press release. “They are both unquestioned leaders in their fields, and their expertise will be an incredible addition to the Music Industry program.”last_img read more


first_imgCan’t Pay Won’t Pay will place a protest picket outside Donegal County Council’s office in Lifford on Monday when councillors will meet with representatives of Irish Water.Cllr Mac Giolla EasbuigSpokesperson Micheál Cholm Mac Giolla Easbuig wants other councillors to join the protest instead of meeting with irish Water.He said, “As a councillor I see no value in meeting with Irish Water. I have been calling on people not to engage with Irish Water which includes not registering for their charges and not paying. Consistent with this, I will not be meeting with Irish Water in Lifford. This is a body which has wasted enormous resources in a chaotic, unnecessary and unwanted water meter installation programme instead of getting to grips with the real problems and waste in our public water supply. It should be disbanded and the council should resume responsibility in this area.” “I was heavily criticised by some councillors for not attending a previous meeting with Irish Water in Carrick-on-Shannon back in October. I said then it would be a complete waste of time. After the meeting those councillors who had been critical of me publicly admitted the meeting had been pointless. I would ask those councillors to now join with us on the protest rather than sitting down with Irish Water.”The public are invited to join the protest picket outside the Council offices at 10am on Monday.“Come along and let Irish Water know that we will not be registering with them, that we do not want their water meters and most importantly of all, we will not pay their charges,” said Cllr Mac Giolla Easbuig.PROTEST TO BE HELD AS COUNCILLORS MEET IRISH WATER was last modified: January 23rd, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Donegal County CouncilIrish WaterprotestPubliclast_img read more
