Commissions

Integrating Musical Creativity into Everyday Life

Nearly all of ACM’s productions include commissioning new work from composers around the world.  Every year we commission a dozen or more composers to write music for our programs and premiere the pieces on our events in New York, Chicago, Barcelona and Mexico City.

Composers write music for our Composer Alive program, for the Sound of Silent Film Festival, for various Open House projects around the world and for other projects and collaborations as they arise.  Commission fees range between $500 and $5,000 depending on the project.
