Do you have new compositions you want to have performed? Empire collaborates with composers to help get their music heard. You can submit:


  • a song,

  • a song cycle,

  • a few scenes,

  • or an entire opera.


Whether it is in the form of an informal reading, concert format, semi-staged or full production, we will work with composers to ensure a successful first run.

We currently do not commission works.


Empire can team up with composers in a shared effort to produce new works. This means any works chosen will result in a collaborative effort with Empire and the composer sharing the responsibility to budget and produce the new music.


So we are best suited for works that, have yet to be performed, and are newly composed. If your work has already had a full production premiere with funding then we are most likely not the right match for you.


We will review your materials and contact you if we feel you are a good match.

Requirements for Submissions

For your music to be considered please submit:
- piano/vocal score
- full score (if available)
- audio files (mp3 or cd)
- synopsis
- cast size and voice types
financial info (grants, donations, etc.) for how you plan to share budget responsibility.


If we are unable to assist you at this time your materials will be returned to you.
