Music SCL NEW YORK SONGARTS CHAIR
TUESDAY, OCTOBER 13, 2020
3:00-5:00pm PST // 6:00-8:00pm EST
SCL SongArts held its first Global SongDemic on June 27, 2020, teaming US-based songwriters with collaborators from around the world. The 26 song presentations were of such a high standard that SongArts LA and New York decided to invite music supervisors and our membership to hear them: Sync Sessions #9 and #10.
The SongDemic featured 26 new songs, so the SongArts team divided the ‘second run’ into two events, one hosted by LA (October 7) and this event, hosted by New York.
