Silvina Moreno Final Thoughts: I Am Me

Today I was singing the words, “Send a wish upon a star. Do the work and you’ll go far,” by brilliant singer/songwriter Sia. These lines got me thinking.

Whether I first came to America with a well thought-out plan, or just by following impulsive craving, from the moment that I arrived until today, I do not regret a single day spent in this place. Coming out here to chase a dream at the cost of living far away from my homeland has changed me forever. Forcing myself out of my natural habitat has opened my eyes to secret life details, that I wouldn’t have otherwise ever noticed if I stayed within my comfort zone. I left a beautiful bubble and saw a new world. Even if I go back now, nothing will be the same again… In a good way, of course.

As I sit at this desk, looking out into this chaotic, yet beautiful New York ant’s nest, I can’t help but thinking, why on Earth would I live here? What am I doing here? Is this who I really am? What does that mean? Who am I?

Silvina Moreno: ‘Networking’ is Quality over Quantity

I am reaching the end of my internship at this company. I am sad and anxious. I am nervous about my future. But oh well, I guess who isn’t?

I will definitely miss the young, creative, bold energy that I sense here everyday. There is something I have learned, or, on a more philosophical perspective, something my memory has re-gained in its infinite archive of lessons, which I consider to be the most important lesson so far: it’s all about quality when it comes to people. That’s really everything that matters to me. Quality time with genuine, real people. There is so much social clutter nowadays that it seems harder and harder to find these gems. But yes, they are out there.

Silvina Moreno: In the Midst of Fear, a Peace of Mind

Today we got free lunch.

The company organized a pizza party for the interns from every department. Not only was the pizza delicious (and I wish I got an extra slice), but also the lunch was a perfect opportunity to meet many people at our company from different departments. I was hoping we would go around and tell everyone who we are and what we were doing there. We were all chit-chatting and I was wondering if these presentations would even happen.

Silvina Moreno: Interviews in NYC

Today we check in with Silvina Moreno, a Songwriting and Music Business major learning the ropes of music marketing in NYC. Keep checking in as Silvina periodically updates us on intern life in the Big Apple

My name is Silvina, I’m from Buenos Aires, Argentina and I am an intern in the marketing department of a very successful music digital distribution company in New York City. Finding this internship was not an easy task, but it was definitely something worth going through. I applied to fifteen different companies and got three answers for phone interviews. My phone interviews went well enough, so I decided to use my Spring Break to head down to New York to meet these people in person. If you get the chance, always meet your employers in person- it makes a world of difference and it can bring great results!

Photo Blog – Spring 2011 Singers Showcase

This semester I got to experience my first Berklee Singer’s Showcase, and boy, did it live up to the hype!

To get a little bit of backstory on the vocalists and how they were chosen for the Singers Showcase, check out my previous blog post on the Live Auditions.

Not only was it my first time experiencing a Singer’s Showcase, I had the pleasure of sitting next to an out-of-towner who was also attending his first Singer’s Showcase and getting his first real taste of the talent Berklee has to offer.

It’s easy to see from the photos why the showcase is considered Berklee’s biggest production of the semester, boasting additional LED stacks and a full compliment of talented musicians and dancers. Before the performance began, Berklee played a video real of past performers and famous alumni to really drive home the point that we could be seeing future stars and Grammy-winners at that night’s showcase, a point which I’m sure no one would deny after hearing the singers perform. Speaking of video, you can stream the entire performance and relive the excitement. But if you prefer to read about the show, here are the highlights.
