Our Commissions

We are passionate about creating new music that excites and engages. If you are looking for an original work then we would love to create it for you! 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.

 

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.
