Maestra Music's AMPLIFY 2024
amplifying creativity and inclusivity in musical theater

Amplify 2024 is produced by Georgia Stitt and Tony Award nominee and Maestra Advisory Board Member Kate Baldwin, Carrie Caffrey, Laura Ivey, and Whitney Britt. The event is presented in partnership with All Together Now and Patchmaster Productions and supported by MusicalWriters.com, Concord Theatricals, and Playbill.


Maestra Music, Inc. was founded by composer/lyricist and music director Georgia Stitt to
provide support, visibility, and community to the women and nonbinary people who make the music in the musical theatre industry. Maestra envisions a world in which women and nonbinary people have equitable access, visibility, and creative impact in the musical theatre industry. In this future, at least half of all music-related theatre jobs and leadership roles are filled by qualified women and nonbinary musicians, decidedly inclusive of people of color. These musicians are historically and consistently under-represented in musical theatre. By delivering on our mission, we will be a catalyst and driving force to help achieve gender equity in our business. Maestra Music Inc. is a 501(c)3 organization based in New York. www.maestramusic.org
