SESAC Celebrates at 2012 Film and Television Awards



Santa Monica, CA –SESAC, the nation’s most progressive performing rights organization, honored its stellar roster of top film and television composers with the annual SESAC Film & Television Composers Awards Dinner. The invitation-only event was held at the chic Casa Del Mar Hotel in Santa Monica, CA, and celebrated the composers of music featured in 2011’s biggest films, primetime television shows and cable programs. 
   
The SESAC event bestows awards to music composers in the categories of Network TV, Local TV, Cable TV and Film Composing.   With over 60 awards given during the evening, some of the most highly rated shows acknowledged were Grey’s Anatomy, Dateline NBC, Parenthood, Two And A Half Men and House among many others. 
 
A major highlight of the evening was the Legacy Award presentation to composer/musician Bruce Miller in recognition of “the outstanding contribution to the world of music” he has made through musicianship, creativity, professional leadership and entrepreneurial contributions. Miller has composed music for such television shows as Frasier, Designing Women and Becker as well as his work on the groundbreaking documentary, A Man From Hope, that was an integral part of Bill Clinton's presidential campaign. Miller was on hand to accept the award in front of his family and colleagues. 

Established in 1930, SESAC is a service organization created to assist both the creators of music and music users through timely, efficient royalty collection and music licensing. SESAC maintains a diversified repertory that includes virtually all genres of music. Headquartered in Nashville, the company also has offices in New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Atlanta and London.
