Propose an idea for a new Consortium Commission

Laura Brenes, horn

Some background

For nearly 20 years, I’ve been involved in consortium commissions for orchestras, choruses, chamber groups and recitalists. I am convinced that gathering together in a “commissioning consortium community” is the most productive, positive and financially feasible way for composers, conductors, and individual performing musicians to work together in our 21st-century arts economy to bring new concert music to the stage.

Have a good idea?

If you have an idea for a consortium commission of any scope and instrumentation—whether for unaccompanied solo instrument, chorus, chamber ensemble, band or orchestra—please send me an email and tell me who you are and what your creative concept is. I will get back to you as soon as I can so we can begin to discuss your thoughts in detail.

Send me your idea via email

Let's connect

And if you haven’t done so already, I hope you’ll choose to connect with me via email and tell me what instrument(s) you play, or what ensemble(s) you conduct.  I will add you to my private (and I do mean private) database of musical friends and colleagues. That way, I can contact you directly whenever I am involved in a project that aligns with your interests

Very best wishes, and I look forward to discussing your ideas with you soon.
