Lincoln Center Theater's Celebration of Student Songs
May 25 - June 20, 2021
Every (typical) year, Sam and co-teacher Laura Dadap's songwriting students from Lincoln Center's Songwriting in Schools Program share their work at the Newhouse Theater, performed by Broadway's finest and a sick band. This year, of course, is different -- but thrillingly, the annual concert has been entirely and safely pre-recorded, and will be streamed on Broadway On Demand.
Tune in from May 25 - June 20th to see work from Sam and Laura's students at Francis Lewis H.S., as well as students from public schools across NYC!
CELEBRATE THE JOURNEY
Sam & Marcus Stevens teamed up again to write the theme song for the Kansas City Starlight Blue Star Awards, read: the Tonys for KC high schools!
Check out this thrilling and moving video produced by the good folx at Starlight -- who observed all appropriate safety guidelines -- entirely in isolation in July, 2020, featuring vocal arrangements by Madeline Smith and orchestrations by Sam.
