During his last semester at Gardner-Webb University, Chris Coffey, 2017 alumnus, worked with one of the top music business in the country. As an intern at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C., Coffey worked directly with professional musicians, and helped schedule concerts for the Youth Fellowship program. “I constantly learned about arts administration and the practices of a successful arts organization,” he shared. “I could not praise the staff at the Kennedy Center enough. Everyone was kind, helpful, and willing to share their immense knowledge of the industry.”
