"ONLINE: Let's say you're a bass-baritone in need of a comedic ballad for your next audition.  Maybe you don't want to dust off the same old Broadway tune they've heard a million times before.  Lucky for you, a new resource awaits.  Earlier this year, singers and voice teachers David Sisco and Lorene Phillips (also a composer and a conductor, respectively) took music-publishing into their own hands - or, more accurately, put it into the hands of artists - by creating the DIRECTORY OF CONTEMPORARY MUSICAL THEATRE WRITERS.  The database, accessible with a $50/year subscription, catalogues nearly 400 previously unpublished songs by 150 songwriters, and it's growing all the time (full disclosure: AT associate editor Rob Weinert-Kendt is among the contributors). The site is searchable by song style and vocal type, and includes composers' biographies, career news and contact info.  Users can stream song samples, review parameters like range and accompaniment difficulty, then order a score directly from its creator (the directory does not take a cut). Additions of youth/teen and duet categories are expected to expand the directory this summer and fall.  Interested songwriters may submit scores and recordings of five songs, which are blindly reviewed by a committee of industry professionals.  Check it out:"
