Please request this extension as soon as you are aware of your need for it. Respond to this question with when you would like your collaboration to begin.

I understand that I will be sent TWO scores (inventory allowing) to select from when beginning a collaborative recording project. Once I have selected a work, my ensemble will complete the recording project within a school semester. If an extension of one school semester is needed, I will request this extension ASAP. I will regularly communicate with my collaborative composer and deliver the highest quality recording possible. My ensemble and the composer will both retain non-commercial, promotional rights to the recording. The recording (with proper citation) will be posted on
, the composer's website, and elsewhere. In exchange, my ensemble has permission to perform the piece ONCE during the semester of recording free of charge. My ensemble may also purchase the piece for our library at a 50% discount from its listed price.
Below, please nominate any directors, ensembles, or composers you believe should be involved in this project and we will reach out to them:
