Black Theatre Coalition is partnering with Broadway Records on a new album titled Black Writers Amplified. Including approximately two dozen tracks of new work from both established and emerging Black musical theatre writers, the album is set to be released later in 2021, with an official release date to be announced in the coming weeks.
The deadline for submissions has been extended from March 31 to May 17, with writers invited to apply at BlackTheatreCoalition.org. Songs will be selected by a panel of industry professionals.
Along with writers, the project looks to elevate and create opportunities for Black engineers, arrangers, orchestrators, music directors, copyists, music contractors, and musicians, reflecting the entire Black theatrical music ecosystem.
Black Writers Amplified is produced by Broadway Records and Black Theatre Coalition in association with Jacquelyn Bell and Jarrett Murray.
