Twenty-Somethings 2, featuring the music of songwriters Drew Overcash, Blake Pfeil and Zoe Sarnak, will be held Aug. 18 at the Highline Ballroom.



Produced by Krysta Hibbard, the 8 PM concert — which follows a sold-out edition last summer — will feature new music from the songwriters' latest projects.

This year's Twenty-Somethings will feature a "Fresh Pens" contest looking for the "next big songwriter," who will be paired with a Broadway star and premiere his/her piece at the concert. The deadline for submissions is June 27, and the winner will be announced July 11. For more information and to enter, click here.

The winner will be chosen by a panel of judges that includes 2014 Tony nominee Bryce Pinkham (A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder), Richard H. Blake (Jersey Boys), Lauren Pritchard (Spring Awakening), Kacie Sheik (Hair) and two-time Tony nominee Robin De Jesus (In the Heights).
