After 10 years of working in the corporate world as a copywriter, Adrianne Munkacsy (that’s mun-kay-see) started her own business with a mission to help growing online entrepreneurs connect to their dream clients in a way that felt natural, never forced — which made her a perfect fit for iCadenza. When she’s not writing, she likes to meditate, dance to her favorite Spotify playlists, take naps, and buy scented soy candles. Adrianne believes that we all have a responsibility to elevate the online conversation and that the best marketing strategies are rooted in truth and a genuine desire for connection.
Kelly Kasle is a bassoonist and entrepreneur currently based in Los Angeles, CA. All of her projects, performances, and work with arts and media organizations are chosen to support her goal to bring classical music back into the forefront of today’s arts culture. She was inspired to pursue a non-traditional career in classical music when she worked in the Institute for Music Leadership Office during her studies at the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, NY. After completing a Performance Degree at Eastman and receiving a certificate from Eastman’s well-known music business program, the Arts Leadership Program, she recently completed a Masters in Performance at Southern Methodist University (SMU) in Dallas, TX. SMU offered ‘Career Development Bootcamp’ to its students, so Kelly got to know the iCadenza team and its goals when she was Jennifer and Julia’s teaching assistant. Now, she is very excited to be working as Jennifer and Julia’s Executive Assistant at Cadenza Artists and iCadenza because their goals closely align with her own. In addition to her work with Cadenza, she has a private studio, teaches master classes, and gigs in Los Angeles. She is an active alumni member of Sigma Alpha Iota and is a Faculty Artist member of the Maryland Wind Festival.
