New Chair at BASCA

By | Published on Wednesday 29 July 2015


The British Academy Of Songwriters, Composers & Authors has itself a brand new Chair. Note the capital letter there. That’s why this is news. Although I like to think they’ve bought Stephen McNeff a new chair too. He is an award-winning composer after all, he deserves something fully ergonomic.

McNeff takes over as Chair of BASCA from Simon Darlow, who has stepped down after two and half years in the job. Confirming McNeff’s appointment, the association’s CEO Vick Bain said: “It is my pleasure to welcome Stephen McNeff as the new Chair of BASCA. He brings with him gravitas, considered thinking and good humour. I look forward to working closely with him supporting his vision for composers and songwriters”.
