Featured Presentation: NSAI Songwriters in the Round

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

There is nothing quite like hearing the songs you know and love, performed by the songwriters who wrote them, the way they were originally written. Songs are performed “in the round” fashion (with each songwriter taking turns singing a hit song they wrote). You will also be able to hear the stories behind the songs.
