ASCAP Experience: Home Edition Extends Virtual Sessions With Congressman Adam Schiff, ‘Leading Ladies’ Panel & More

The virtual edition of the ASCAP Experience conference extends into late July with classes on team building, “leading ladies” in publishing, a Town Hall with U.S. House Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA) and more, Billboard can exclusively reveal.

On July 16, the ASCAP Experience: Home Edition returns with the afternoon session “Sound Advice — How to Build Your Music Team,” featuring moderator Bryan Calhoun (founder, Music Business Toolbox) and speaker Leron Rogers (partner, Lewis Brisbois Bisgaard & Smith, LLP).

Later in the day, Coach K (COO of Quality Control Music) joins an “In Conversation” with Nicole George Middleton, ASCAP senior vice president, membership; and Priscilla Renea and DJ Camper will explore the magical “aha” moment in songwriting.

The afternoon’s activities wrap with the “Leading Ladies of Publishing” panel, featuring Brandra Ringo (Warner Chappell Music), Ari Gelaw, (UPMG) and Jennifer Drake (Sony/ATV).

The action continues July 23, with Sound Advice with BeatStars; “The Publisher Share” with Rusty Gaston (Sony/ATV) interviewed by Billboard executive editor Melinda Newman; a yet-to-be-announced artist panel session; and a Town Hall with Adam Schiff and ASCAP chairman of the board and president Paul Williams.

The programming for the July 30 Wellness Day will be announced in due course.

ASCAP’s free, ongoing weekly virtual event began May 28 with the aspiration to “inspire, educate and connect” music creators during the lockdown period.
