WHO KNEW presents The Pitch: An Evening with Music Supervisors

  • City Winery

From CityWinery.com, "WHO KNEW, sponsored by MusicRowSearch and the College of Media and Entertainment at Middle Tennessee State University, will present “The Pitch: An Evening With Music Supervisors” on Tuesday, November 15, at City Winery. The event will mirror last year’s hugely successful Pitch event that featured music supervisors representing television, film, trailers, video games and advertising, listening to live bands perform their material in hopes that a song may be selected for a synch placement right on the spot.
 
Steve Schnur (Global Head of Music at Electronic Arts), Anastasia Brown (veteran TV producer and music supervisor) and Dawn Soler (SVP of Music at ABC Television) will moderate a panel of senior-level music supervisors, who will also share stories and tips about the types of music they are seeking to place in television, film, trailers, video games and branded advertising."
