Sasha is excited to be attending the BMI Lehman Engel Musical Theatre Workshop as a composer for the year 2018-2019.
On July 27th and 28th, Sasha will be making her NYC debut as a composer. The song "Ice Cream Truck" from Sasha and writing partner Jeffrey Morse's original musical Something Ever After will be featured at the New York Musical Festival as a part of the concert production "Breaking Down". This song cycle aims to focus on issues facing the millennial generation such as social media, hook up culture, college debt, job scarcity, and gun violence on campuses, to name a few.
