Commission a Composer and Composer Directory

 

Through CSIC’s Commissions in Concert program, educators select a composer to write a piece for their youth ensemble. The composer guides the students through the process of commissioning music and students gain the extraordinary opportunity of performing a piece written specifically for them.

Learn more about our Commissions in Concert program here. 

Use the composer directory below to find a composer who is a good fit for your music program. The directory is comprised of composers who have been CSIC-vetted: They are available for youth ensemble commissions, and they have the skillset to be a good fit in a youth environment.

If you don’t see a composer that you’re looking for, contact us, we work with composers throughout the country.
