Unveil the curtain behind your favorite musical production in Center Stage, where you'll learn what it takes to manage and perform at the highest level attainable. Percussionist, music coordinator, and personnel manager, Neglia takes readers through a journey of self-discovery through the documentation of his travels through Europe, jaw-dropping stories of behind-the-scenes drama in the symphony, and his musical heritage. Feel like a passenger alongside Neglia's excursions through the Alps and a player in one of Jim's productions as he details the events that have shaped him into the successful man he is today. Fans of Bob Dylan's Chronicles or Amanda Palmer's The Art of Asking will enjoy the candid, raw nature of Neglia's story of sacrifice, passion, and a question of ethics that threaten to drive his life and career into the ground. Center Stage will cause readers to laugh, cry, and laugh until they cry as they examine their own values and goals alongside Neglia.
