The Laurel School/Elevation Group relationship will once again extend beyond the production of a music festival and into the classroom.  As a part of this unique collaboration, Laurel and Elevation have created an experiential learning opportunity for Laurel’s Upper School students.  Students had active roles in the production and staging of last summer’s event, and while in the classroom, they learned about all aspects associated with event production, marketing, public relations, sponsorships, talent relations, artist booking, contracts, legal and more.
