GRAMMY- and Emmy-winning BMI composer and jazz artist Mark Isham was recently named an Ambassador at the Society of Composers and Lyricists’ (SCL) 26th annual holiday dinner on December 15, 2014, at The Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades, California.
The SCL Ambassador Program was created by the society “to recognize and acknowledge a select group of composers and lyricists without whose valuable contributions our profession would be less than it is, without whose creativity our artistic community would be lacking and without whose gift our society would be deprived of wonderful music and song expressed by their genius. Their achievements will be used as the ultimate standard for future generations of film composers and songwriters.”
The festive evening welcomed film and television executives, composers and singer-songwriters to a cocktail reception, followed by dinner that included opening remarks by SCL President Ashley Irwin, which segued into the presentation of the evening’s honors.
