Hal to Distribute Lauren Keiser Music
Hal Leonard has signed a deal to distribute the newly formed Lauren Keiser Music Publishing company’s music catalog.
A 36-year music industry veteran, Keiser acquired the assets and music copyrights of MMB Music in St. Louis to form his new company. The classical and educational catalog features concert music for orchestra, wind ensemble, opera and chamber ensemble.
Keiser has worked for Alfred Publishing, Cherry Lane Music and Astor Music & Books. Most recently, he served as Carl Fischer’s president and CEO.
“Lauren and I go back decades together,” said Keith Mardak, president of Hal Leonard. “We’re confident that his broad network of industry contacts will enable him to quickly expand his new venture, and we’re looking forward to a mutually fruitful relationship.”
