NEO (an acronym for “New, Emerging, Outstanding”) celebrates songwriters primed to pen the next generation of musicals. Since the first NEO concert in 2003 -- recorded by England’s JAY Records-- musical theatre fans and York supporters eagerly anticipate each incarnation.  Since 2012, each season’s NEO program has focused on a smaller group of writers, presenting multiple songs by each in a kickoff concert, followed by a series of fully-funded readings of works in progress.
