Our next monthly open mic will honor women composers and lyricists in musical theater. Looking for that one special song to sing on March 10th ? You’ve come to the right place ! We’ve listed a few of our favorite ladies to help you in your selection. From writers of classics to upcoming composers, these women know how to write a good song… Who said it’s a man’s world?
