Free concerts and social events with the “big fish” in the music industry are great, but intern Emily Kopp is enjoying even her more tedious duties at Nonesuch Records this summer.
“Sending packages has never been so fun!” says Kopp, a Business major entering her junior year this fall. “On my first day I packaged new Shawn Colvin CDs to be sent to magazines, radio stations, producers, etc. and after that I found myself sorting through band poster and older records.
“I got to check out band merchandise from Wilco, Punch Brothers, The Black Keys, and Carolina Chocolate Drops,” she says. “When a new artist releases a CD, I'm in charge of sending the pre-releases to everyone on our publicity manager's contact list.”
Kopp says her first day at work was like the first day of school, “But way scarier.”
