July Session – Composer Night
Where: Norwood Live, Norwood Hotel
Each year we dedicate a Session to a music theatre writer. Over the last three years we’ve celebrated the music of Stephen Schwartz, Jason Robert Brown, and Andrew Lloyd Webber.
We thought it was high time we showcased a female writer. Problem is (and what a good problem to have) there are so many amazing female composers and lyricists to choose from (many whose names aren’t in the mainstream). Think Jeanine Tesori, Lynn Ahrens, Lucy Simon, Amanda Green, Georgia Stitt, Brenda Russell, Kait Kerrigan, Marcy Heisler, Zina Goldrich, Nell Benjamin, Allee Willis, Mindi Dickstein.
With all these amazing names, how do you pick just one? We couldn’t. So, we are asking YOU to pick two songs by a female writer and head to our registration page to express your interest. Registrations are open Sunday 30 June until Sunday 14 July.
