New York bound: Conferences & Musicals

Fellow ATWN contributor Erin Fletcher and I are heading to the Big Apple at the end of July for the 2015 Writers Digest Annual Conference. And what better way to combine our love of writing and music than to also take in a Broadway musical while we’re there? As a huge fan of GLEE, I may have done a little high-pitched squealing when Erin saw this particular musical starring Matthew Morrison:

5560-4[1]

Can. Not. Wait.

Finding Neverland has won the 2015 Audience Choice award for Best Musical, and the concept album was just released this past week. In anticipation of the upcoming show, I will be purchasing and listening to this over and over in the upcoming weeks…and I have to say, so far, I’m a fan. While I recognize most of the artists on the album, the Broadway Musical genre isn’t one I normally listen to, so it’s been cool to switch gears and dive into something a little bit different.

The full track listing for Finding Neverland: The Album
1. Zendaya – “Neverland”
2. Kiesza – “Stronger
3. Nick Jonas – “Believe”
4. Ellie Goulding – “When Your Feet Don’t Touch The Ground”
5. Paloma Faith – “Circus Of Your Mind”
6. Jennifer Lopez & Trey Songz – “What You Mean To Me”
7. Rita Ora & Sage The Gemini – “Are We Gonna Play?”
8. Christina Aguilera – “Anywhere But Here”
9. Jon Bon Jovi – “Beautiful Day”
10. Pentatonix – “Stars”
11. John Legend – “My Imagination”
12. Gary Barlow – “Something About This Night”
13. Matthew Morrison – “We Own The Night With Lucy”

15. Goo Goo Dolls – “If The World Turned Upside Down”

Here’s to hoping your summer adventures broaden your horizons in new and fun ways!
