About The FALL EVENTS

“The NAMT team continues to be an inspiration. You guys are so consistently creating meaningful, useful opportunities during this time (well, always, but EVEN in this time). I was impressed with the breadth of offerings at the conference and festival and the sense of community that was fostered in the digital sphere.”

– Elissa Adams, Theater Latté Da

Join us for NAMT’s Fall Events! At the Fall Conference (October 18-19), NAMT members will gather in person at the Pershing Square Signature Center on 42nd Street and virtually from around the country and the world to discuss the latest in new musical development and production.
