LOS ANGELES, Feb. 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- West One Music Group announces its sponsorship of The Future is Female: A Concert for Women in Film. As a global music company, West One Music Group supports and works alongside a vast and diverse array of composers and is passionate about promoting the invaluable work of females in what often can be seen as a competitive and male-dominated industry.
The Future is Female: A Concert for Women in Film provides a much-needed platform for talented female composers and musicians who can often be overlooked in the film music industry. The concert will showcase the original work of ten up-and-coming female composers currently working in Film, TV and Video Games and will be presented by the exceptional thirty-one piece Hollywood Chamber Orchestra.
The concert is being organized by Tori Letzler, founder of non-profit organization Future is Female Concerts and Events Inc. Letzler is an established composer and vocalist, having worked on a number of Hollywood blockbusters (Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, Thor: The Dark World) and alongside composers such as Hans Zimmer and Jimmy Levine. Despite her success, Letzler has experienced first-hand how difficult it can be as a female breaking into the film music industry and knows from experience there are a wealth of talented women not receiving the recognition and opportunities that they deserve:
"It is so important that women are supported in this industry, and with this concert, they are being provided with a platform to showcase their incredible, yet often overlooked talents. In order for the industry to welcome women as equals, they must be welcomed as such by their peers. The females in this industry are proud, they are smart, they are confident, and they are creating beautiful music. These women are here to tell stories and to inspire others. Everyone involved in the concert has done incredible things and finally a long overdue spotlight will shine on them."
Letzler has worked with West One Music Group as both a composer and vocalist, and after presenting her plans for the concert, the company was instantly excited to be involved with such an important and timely event, as Edwin Cox, President, and Creative Director explains:
"Here at West One Music Group many of our global community of composers and musicians are women. When Tori, as one of those composers, explained her plans for The Future Is Female we instantly wanted to support her. It's incredibly important for us to continue to promote the work of our composers in what can be a very competitive industry. Tori is an extremely talented composer and vocalist, and her passion for this event and the success of the industry as a whole is inspiring. The ten composers on the bill have already achieved great things, and will undoubtedly go on to even greater success emboldened by the event that Tori has created. The Hollywood Chamber Orchestra, who are impressive in their own right, will further elevate these composer's rising profiles, by bringing their music to life on the night. As a company, we are thrilled to help give a platform, in any way that we can, to these inspirational and talented women."
