April 6th marked the Music and Entertainment Student Association’s (MEISA) fourth annual Music Industry Conference hosted at Hofstra University in New York. Korg USA sponsored the cause by providing a variety of gear for their artist showcase including VOX and Blackstar combo amps and a Korg Grandstage piano.

Up and coming solo artist Josh Metzler performed his newest single “Titanic,” followed by appearances from hip-hop artist Marcaux and pop sensation KarmaRe. 

“Korg USA’s participation and donation of instruments and equipment allowed the performers to put on a memorable show,” explains Kylee Schmoyer, vice president of MEISA. “We’re excited to have established this relationship and appreciate their support for local musicians and students.” Schmoyer concludes.

In addition to the musical performances, MEISA also held an Entrepreneurs in the Music Industry panel that featured a collection of influential names in the music and media industries. Korg USA’s artist relations specialist David Ungar joined the roster of names to talk about his role within the company for students and attendees alike.

“As a local music distributor, it was an honor to not only support a local university, but also the up and coming artists who supported MEISA’s event,” says Morgan Walker, senior marketing manager for Korg USA. “We have a great relationship with Hofstra’s music department and look forward to future opportunities to enhance the student’s educational experience,” Walker explains.
