Every January my entire family gets excited about the big event. For everyone but me, it’s the $150,000 Ice Fishing Contest near my hometown of Brainerd, Minnesota. This is where 10,000 people stand on a frozen lake trying to catch fish through holes in the ice.
Somehow I’ll leave this all behind to attend the NAMM Show in Anaheim, California. This is where 100,000 music industry professionals, from around the world, gather to experience the latest music products in-person.
If you’ll be joining Finale at NAMM, please come and visit us at the MakeMusic booth (# 6210 in Hall A), where we will conduct in-booth demos for Finale, Garritan, and SmartMusic. View the demo schedule.
On Wednesday, Jan 22 (the day before NAMM begins) MakeMusic is teaming up with the American Society of Music Arrangers and Composers (ASMAC) to host “The Hollywood Arrangers,” a unique opportunity to interact with top film and television composers and arrangers. Check out the full details. If you’ll be anywhere near Hollywood, please consider joining Tom Johnson, myself, and several top LA composers-orchestrators for in-depth discussion and a gourmet buffet luncheon.
If, like the rest of my family, you won’t be anywhere near California in January, you can still enjoy all the late-breaking news right here on our blog as well as on Facebook and Twitter.
