WASBE has undertaken the commissioning of a new work by internationally renowned composer, Jennifer Higdon (http://jenniferhigdon.com).  The new composition will be premiered at the WASBE biannual conference in Prague in July of 2022.  With half of the commissioning consortia confirmed, we are now inviting you to become part of this important international commissioning initiative.

This will be a 8-10 minute work written for University-level musicians.   

You have two options for participation:

•  Lead Commissioner at $2,000.  This will grant you the exclusive right to the local premiere performance of the commissioned work during the 2022-23 season, without additional payment of performance fees or score and parts.

•  Supporting Commissioner at $250. This will grant you similar rights as those of Lead Commissioner, but performances will take place following the 2022-23 season.

If you are interested in participating on either of these levels, please contact Matt George (mjgeorge@stthomas.edu) for details.  Once confirmed, WASBE will send you an invoice.  Payment will be due by March 1, 2022
