Commissioning Project

It’s very important to us to keep our art form relevant and vibrant, and what better way to do that than commission local composers to write new music. They are living right here, so naturally everything they do is a part of what’s happening in St. Louis right now. We also happen to have an incredible group of composers to work with!
