WILLIAM FINN'S

EMERGING WRITERS                       

A CONCERT OF SONGS WRITTEN BY *

STUDENTS OF WILLIAM FINN

New York Theatre Barn will present concerts of work written by members of Tony Award-winning writer William Finn’s (Falsettos, Spelling Bee) first two virtual Master Classes in Lyric Writing. NYTB will offer two free live stream presentations: Thursday, May 20th @ 7PM and Thursday, May 27th @ 7PM. The hour-long presentations are produced in association with Lauren Taslitz

Inspired by his love of teaching, and a desire to motivate emerging writers to continue to hone their craft during the pandemic, William Finn met with writers every Sunday afternoon for two consecutive 10-week sessions, creating communities in which the writers could share and receive feedback on their work. The result is the wonderful collection of songs that will be featured in the concerts. Maestra, an organization that provides support, visibility, and community for the women who make the music in the musical theatre industry, gave Bill the opportunity to identify and invite female-identifying lyricists and composers into the room.
