Our Commissions

We are passionate about creating new music that excites and engages. We have written pieces for the concert hall, school ensembles, community choirs, whole school projects, and video projects.

We can write for any sized ensemble (the current record stands at a piece for 400 students!) and can tailor the piece to suit your specific needs. We can also help you arrange and add percussion parts to existing songs. 

Instrumentation: Tuned, untuned, or a combination.

Number of Parts: As desired.

Duration: As desired.

Price: As there are many factors to consider we ask you to please contact us for a quote.

Each commission comes with the score and parts, unlimited performance permission, as well as online support materials as required. There is also the option of us performing in the ensemble and workshopping the piece with you.
