SCL LA SONGARTS CHAIR
WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 7, 2020
2:00pm-4:00pm PST // 5:00pm-7:00pm EST
SCL SongArts held its first Global SongDemic on June 27, 2020, teaming US-based songwriters with collaborators from around the world. The song presentations were of such a high standard that SongArts LA and NY decided to invite music supervisors and our membership to hear them – Sync Session #9.
The SongDemic featured 26 new songs, so the SongArts team has divided their ‘second run’ into two events, one for LA and one for NY (which will be announced at a later date). The LA event will focus on the results of these 12 songwriter pairings:
Deborah Ward & Ned Paul Ginsburg
Elise Solberg & George Shaw
Marie Kingsley & Matt Citron
Arhynn Descy & Gene Micofsky
David Das & Joelle Sahar
Rachel Maloney & Rivita Goyle
Julie Lyons & Matthew Hurewitz
Angela Parrish & Robin Share
Chris Wirsig & Daniel E. Wakefield
Greg Sgammato & Mark Cross
Diana Nassar & Lionel Cohen
Bronte Horder & Bryson Kemp
