Dear all, Please come to this unique and important event organized by the Society for Composers and Lyricists. It will be a rare opportunity to address many of the key issues that we face as NY-based composers, particularly the Union/non-Union question. It will provide practical, constructive information for the established or emerging composer to help navigate the options and the changing landscape of live recording in NY. We have put together a great panel who will offer their first-hand experience through major picture and indie film, television and stage. If you do, or hope to, record a score in New York, absolutely do not miss this! RSVP details are in the flyer below - it will fill up fast.

  • I certainly would if I was in NYC at this time, but I cannot afford the time for a trip right now. I am certain this will be an excellent event and I urge everyone in the area to go!
