Las Vegas—Timeless Communications Corp., which publishes b-to-b brands Projection Lights & Staging News, Stage Directions and Front of House, has purchased the assets of Needham, Mass.-based Symphony Publishing, a subsidiary of Cleveland-based Zapis Capital Group. The newly acquired titles are Musical Merchandise Review, serving the musical instrument industry, and three brands for music educators, School Band & Orchestra, JAZZed and Choral Director.
TCC will redesign the new titles within the next 12 months, the company said in a statement. The new magazines will be referred to as the Musical Instrument and Education Division of Timeless Communications Corp., and the production and business office of the magazine will be transferred to Las Vegas.
Administrative and production positions will be eliminated with the closure of Symphony's Needham, Mass., office, but the editorial and sales staff for the acquired titles will continue with the new company. A new salesperson and editorial director will be added to the team.
