Perfect Pitch is a contest that gives students a chance to simulate the role of a songwriter signed to a major label. The end result will be a night of great live music, featuring Berklee's top vocalists performing tunes written by some of the college's brilliant songwriters, backed by talented student bands.

Doors open at 7:00 p.m., and the music starts shortly after.

In the songwriting world, when a superstar artist (e.g., Faith Hill) records an album, she will put out a call to songwriters asking them to write songs for her to record. The songwriters do their best to fit Hill's musical and lyrical style and vocal range, and in the end Hill (and her producers) get to pick which song works best.

The singers will choose the winning song, and then perform it with some of the best players at Berklee for an audience gathered at one of Boston's leading nightclubs, Royale. Audience voters will determine the top three songs of the night.
