Wendy & Lisa are Honored at Score! (Video Included)

Sorry! It's been a while since there has been a good Wendy & Lisa News post, but the ladies have been pretty quiet (they are probably doing something cool like 'working' and 'living life'. lol).

However, the dynamic duo were recently honored at a first-time, sold-out event called "Score!" As the Hollywood Reporter says, Score! is the brainchild of TV Academy Music Peer Group Governor Michael A. Levine who envisioned a concert in which a 67-piece orchestra and a 40-voice LA chorus would perform some of TV music's greatest compositions. The event, sponsored by The American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers, was held May 21st at UCLA's Royce Hall. 

Both Lisa Coleman and Wendy Melvoin were in the audience to see their work from Heroes, Touch, Carnivale, and Nurse Jackie conducted by the very talented Suzie Katayama (who played stings along with Lisa's brother, David Coleman, on Purple Rain's "Take Me With You", "Baby I'm A Star", and "Purple Rain". Ms. Katayama also did work on Madonna's Ray of Light album and has worked with many other great performers).

The "Score!" event is yet another reminder (besides their Emmy) of how talented both Lisa & Wendy truly are. In a field heavily dominated by men, they demonstrate the breadth, talent, and work ethic that women can posses and combine these ideals to reach the highest echelons of television composing. As a woman, they will always be an inspiration to me (and, if I had an ounce of musical ability, they would be even greater roll models).

Thanks to the ladies' great manager, we can witness their very cool honor!
