About the Seminar

The SongFest Seminar created an invaluable learning experience for local artists in Broward by providing an opportunity to learn from and work with music industry professionals.

Led by two-time Grammy nominated singer/songwriter and producer Elsten Torres, participants of SongFest learned to develop their music creation skills and gained knowledge to carry them forward throughout their musical career. Consisting of a 6-session seminar throughout August 2019, 11 performers worked together, in groups and individually on creation of original music. The 11 performers are from all areas of Broward, with a broad range of musical skills and styles.
