Are you looking for music for a future concert, series, or special event (i.e. anniversary, wedding, birthday, memorial, etc.)? No matter what the occasion, there may be several reasons that you may wish to program commissioned work. First, the new piece will be personalized, as you and/or your organization will be involved throughout the composing process. If you would like the piece to incorporate a particular style, mood, emotion, depict a piece of artwork, amongst other possibilities, any of those elements are most certainly possible! If you are a performer or an ensemble, commissioning a new work that exhibits your strengths and interests is a great way to expand your repertoire. In all cases, you will have rights to the first performance of the work, and your name(s) will be acknowledged in all future copies of the score. In addition, you will be supporting the future of new music and creative activities. Not to mention, it is my hope that the entire process will be a rewarding one!
Rates vary according to the duration of the composition and size of the ensemble. Please contact me to discuss details more in depth, and I look forward to collaborating with you!
