The trio of songwriters will serve as master teachers for the songwriting intensive that runs June 21-27 on the Evanston campus of Northwestern University. The workshop, open to 12 writers or writing teams ages 18-30, is offered at no cost to participants, who also receive a stipend to cover board and travel expenses. The week-long Songwriters Project culminates in a concert tribute to Johnny Mercer that will include Miranda (In the Heights), Carnelia (Sweet Smell of Success, Is There Life After High School?) and White (Ring of Fire, "Green Eyed Soul"), as well as the participating student songwriters.
Applications are currently being accepted for the Johnny Mercer Songwriters Project through April 6. For information visit SongwritersProject.
