At the Starting Line

The Jimmy Awards has been described as a marathon indoors.  Over the next six days our talented nominees will be training for the event of their lifetime - the opportunity to make their Broadway debut at the famed Minskoff Theatre on Broadway. Last night the all approached the starting line for this marvelous adventure.

The kids arrived at 720 Broadway - the Tisch School of the Arts at NYU - fresh faced, full of enthusiasm and eager for the adventure to begin.  Several had just flown for the very first time, and some had never before laid eyes on New York City.  They gathered together for the first time over pizza and made immediate connections that will likely be the start of life-long friendships.

After dinner they hit the ground running.  NHSMTA Executive Producer Van Kaplan  and Choreographer Kiesha Lalama met with the nominees, and everyone had a chance to introduce themselves before they began  learning music for the opening and closing numbers for the show with Music Director Michael Moricz.

It was a fun and full first day.  After stopping by their dorm lounge for a snack and a few more moments with their new found friends, the nominees heading off to bed to rest up for Day 2!

  1. One of the maximum paying music entertainment careers is a music maker. Music producers are the leader of the music recording session. They take arraign when it comes to music mixing and editing.
