Alums Sean Patrick Flahaven and Georgia Stitt (both Cycle 7) were honored for their achievements
During its annual SESSIONS kickoff event, the GMTWP honored two of its alumni, Sean Patrick Flahaven and Georgia Stitt (both Cycle 7), for their recent non-writing achievements in the theatre industry.
Georgia Stitt was honored as the founder of the organization MAESTRA, a community of female-identifying, non-binary, and gender non-conforming composers, music directors, orchestrators, arrangers, copyists, rehearsal pianists and other musicians who are an underrepresented minority in musical theater. The organization’s initiatives include monthly educational seminars, mentorship programs, technical skills workshops, networking events, and online resources and partnerships that aim to promote equality of opportunity and to address the many historical disadvantages and practices that have limited women composers and musicians in the musical theater.
Sean Patrick Flahaven was honored for his recent achievements as President of Concord Theatricals, a joint venture between Concord Music, now the fifth largest music company in the world, and The Really Useful Group, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s landmark production company. Concord Theatricals handles theatrical licensing, music publishing, and cast recordings for theatre writers and producers—the first time such services have been combined.
