Featuring songs written during the weeklong intensive, this all-genre all-digital concert showcases some of the most exciting writers of today. The highly competitive international program invites around a dozen songwriters or songwriting teams to spend a week working with award-winning professional master teachers and honors the legacy of Johnny Mercer by fostering the tradition of mentorship that Johnny was committed to throughout his career. The concerts are presented free of charge and all available on YouTube!
