Image for EarShot Releases Archive of New, Promising Composers

Feb 03, 2017

EarShot has released a searchable composer archive that will serve as a resource to orchestra conductors and administrators searching for new repertory and composers. A partnership between the American Composers Orchestra, League of American Orchestras, American Composers Forum, and New Music USA, EarShot is a national orchestra competition discovery network.

According to EarShot’s description of the archive, “Each of the composers/works in the searchable list…has been selected, workshopped and read/performed by an EarShot member orchestra. These orchestras represent some of the most accomplished forward-looking musical organizations in the world. Each composer and piece has gone through an extensive vetting process that includes feedback from mentor-composers, conductors, music librarians and top orchestra musicians. The pieces are performance-ready at the highest professional standards.”

You can learn more about the archive and access it here.
