The Inaugural P.M. Arts Discussion Series

Turning Down the Pink Noise  – Clarifying the roles of SOCAN and Re:Sound in Canadian Theatre production

Presented by:  SM Arts – Stage Managing the Arts

What do you mean I can’t use that song during pre-show? I need to do WHAT with the lobby music? Why is it called “a tariff”? Theatre professionals have enough on their to-do lists without adding Music Royalties – and why do we have to worry about them anyway?

This moderated session will lay out the history and reasons behind music royalties in Canada, and provide participants with a step-by-step way to understand and deal with overlapping jurisdictions.

A must-attend event for all of us who deal with budgets and contracts.
