Jennifer Tipton  came up with a great idea. She says "This year I was hoping to bring several lighting designers together to be on a panel first thing and then spend the morning through lunch so that they could chat with young people at coffee and lunch." So far, Howell Binkley and Don Holder have said they'd join and others may join as well. What a fantastic  session to start off Stage Lighting Super Saturday in NYC on Jan. 14th 2017.
