Ambassador Program

The SCL Ambassador Program was created to recognize and acknowledge a select group of composers and lyricists without whose valuable contributions our profession would be less than it is, without whose creativity our artistic community would be lacking and without whose gift our society would be deprived of wonderful music and song expressed by their genius. Their achievements will be used as the ultimate standard for future generations of film composers and songwriters.
