Opportunities and resources for composers

This resource is a non-exhaustive list of opportunities, networks, venues, ensembles, record labels and events which may wish to engage composers in commissions or partnership work. It is designed to serve as a starting point. Building relationships with performers and venues is equally important. We have also included some ISM resources to help you further.
