Faculty chairs Jules Fisher, Abe Jacob, and Wendall Harrington have released updated schedules for the upcoming Entertainment Design Master Classes, June 20-24 at the Tribeca Arts Center in New York City. The new schedules for the Master Classes feature legendary new speakers, panels, and exciting cocktail receptions for attendees, designers, and manufacturers.

The latest BLMC schedule features a welcome to attendees by lighting industry veteran Sonny Sonnenfeld and Don Holder’s session "Lighting the Cyclorama/Broadway Anecdotes." The BSMC sessions have been reorganized and will present a closing session with Peter Hylenski, "It’s Called a "Music-al." The Projection Master Classes just announced the projection panel with projection "giants" Ron Chase, Richard Pilbrow, and Rudi Stern (for more information, click here), as well as a special addition on projections in concerts featuring designer Gary Westcott (Jay-Z, Prince, Bon Jovi, Guns N Roses, Tina Turner) and Mats Karlson from Barco.

Look to the complete schedule below for details; note that speakers and times are subject to change.
