Here’s a nice clip about the annual TED Conference, for which I have acted as Musical Director over the past 5 years.
This year’s conference takes place March 7th-10th in Monterey, CA. It’s shaping up to be a good one, with speakers including Isabel Allende, Bill Clinton, and Richard Branson. We’ve managed to score some major musical talent also–how about Paul Simon, Tracy Chapman, They Might Be Giants and Raul Midon? And BT’s offered to spin at the last night party.
Forget about trying to buy a ticket though–TED’s always sold out at least six months in advance, costs $4400 a ticket, and you need to be invited. However, you can always download the FREE ‘TEDtalks‘–18 minute video slots featuring world class speakers.
