"A LITTLE NEW MUSIC  is the best hour of new and unheard musical theatre material in LA!"  - LA Weekly

And, guess what?  Generating this concert series is an all-volunteer effort.  But, we'd like to change that.  

We've been producing this unique concert series in LA since 2013...and these past 15 concerts would never have been possible without the volunteer commitments of our performers.  

Many of these talented and fearless folks have learned brand new songs simply to contribute to the process of new works, and to support some amazing writers!  We are so thankful to our community for bringing us this far.  But starting 2018, we want to grow to a paid model for the benefit of our performers -- and we need your help!  

Like so many arts programs out there, ticket revenues do not begin to cover the budget for performer stipends.  Will you help us get there?

We do 3 to 4 concerts per year, and typically premiere 12 to 14 songs at each concert.  Each concert costs approximately $2500 to produce.   Multiplied by 3, that's $7,500.  Multiplied by 4, that's $10,000!

2018 concert dates are still being worked out, but our first concert of 2018 is planned for Tuesday, March 6th.  So, we'd love to ensure that we have the additional funding in place to start the year off right.  Maybe this one will be our next Broadway World Award Nomination.  We've got one so far, but it sure would be fun to have a pair!  

Your support means the world to us!  Remember, we're volunteering our time to do this, but we think that our audiences, both locally in Los Angeles, and online (YouTube, Facebook) deserve to see and hear these fantastic songs!  

 We look for the best, most diverse and interesting songs to keep our audiences connected to the cutting edge of musical theater.  We believe that we are all better off when music tells our stories. 

We'd LOVE to be able to include YOUR NAME on our DONOR LIST, and give you Special Recognition for your generous contributions.  

Whether a premiere from an established writer or an undiscovered tune from a promising up-
and-comer, our mission is to showcase talent with a program that keeps your finger on the pulse.

Since 2013, A LITTLE NEW MUSIC has introduced an impressive array of nearly 200 songs by over 120 writing teams, representing 
-- Drama Desk winners and Tony-nominated Irene Sankoff and David Hein
-- Academy and Tony Award-winners Pasek & Paul 
-- Miller & Tysen 
-- Matt Gould 
-- Ryan Scott Oliver 
-- Carner & Gregor 
-- Milburn & Vigoda 
-- Adam Gwon 
-- Joe Iconis 
-- Drew Fornarola 
-- Carmel Dean, Kerrigan & Lowdermilk, Gregory Nabours, and so many more...

Songs have been showcased by over 200 performers of the stage and screen including Tony Award-winner Daisy Eagan (THE SECRET GARDEN); Tony Award-winning writer Jeff Marx (AVENUE Q); Shoshana Bean (WICKED); John Tartaglia (AVENUE Q, SHREK THE MUSICAL); Tony nominee Kevin Chamberlin (SEUSSICAL, DISASTER THE MUSICAL); Tony nominee Sharon McNight (STARMITES); Joseph Morales (title role in HAMILTON Nat’l Tour); Eric Petersen (SCHOOL OF ROCK); J.

Even though we will probably continue to produce these concerts purely out of our love for new musical theater works, your monetary support will make that work so much easier to do.   Once you've made your donation, please kindly pass it on and share this campaign with other musical theater lovers, like yourself.   

We can't thank you enough for your support!  And, our future performers will thank you as well!

I can't name names, because asked to remain anonymous, but ALNM received a very generous donation today from a wonderful artist. She donated $500 to match my challenge! So, I'll be adding another $500 to the coffers very soon. Thank you for your wonderful gift that will support the singers and songwriters in our upcoming concert on Tuesday, March 6th at The Catalina Jazz Club.
You're amazing! Cheers!

So, kids...we're getting close to our first $1000 of our overall campaign. Our next concert is coming up on March 6th and we'd love to get to $2500 by that point. Every donation counts, and we'll love you even more than we do now!

We've already got an imporessive line-up. And, you'll recognize one of them from his umpteen commercials, Clayton Farris! He's one of my favorite funny guys! Come see and donate now!
