TIN PAN ALLEY 2 Concert Series To Celebrate 'Love' With Upcoming Performance

Tin Pan Alley 2, a free concert series featuring new musical theatre works, will feature a panel of emerging writers on Friday, February 12th, 2021 at 7:30pm ET. The February 2021 edition will be celebrating "love" with new works by the writers Eli Cohen, G. Victoria Campbell, and Erin J. Reifler & Spencer Robelen, and hosted by Durra Leung and Sam Rosenblatt. The streaming is free, and will stay online permanently. For more information and to RSVP, go to Tin Pan Alley 2's website.

The idea of Tin Pan Alley 2 Concert Series is from the legendary birthplace of numerous American Standards in the early 20th century. The concert series' mission is to provide a platform for emerging musical theatre writers, and free entertainment for the audience. Each 45-minute concert has a specific theme and features three emerging musical theatre writers (or songwriting teams). They will each present three pre-recorded song performance videos, and have a conversation with the hosts to share their creative process.

Guest performers include Daniele Alan-Carter, Ruby Gibson, Emma Griffone, Drew Hope, Sam Hunter Durant, Abbey Immer, Auguste Jankauskaite, Taylor Jones Iman, Conor McGarry, Mia Nevarez, Esteban Suero, and Kuhoo Verma.
