Chapter News and Events

Please mark your calendars for this special event where members can submit a recorded song to be played at the meeting and members will vote on the best song of the night. Those songs will be forwarded to Ole Music and they will pick the best of the best for a single song contract to be awarded to as many songwriters/songs as they see fit based on what they deem as being commericially viable or usable for a sync license. In 2018, 4 songwriters received single song contracts!

Only members can submit and vote, but non members are welcome to watch with a $15 non member fee.

More details to follow!
