Commissioning a work is a wonderfully personal process where the ensemble and composer work closely together to create something new which is specifically tailored to the group. It is one of my favorite things to do, so please feel free to contact me to discuss your commissioning request.

The text is one of the most crucial parts of the commissioning process.  A context for the work, including any specific message you wish to communicate is always helpful.  Once I find a suitable text, I'll submit it for your approval before embarking on the work.  

Rates also vary depending on the length and scope of the piece, as well as time allowed for its creation. However, I always do my best to find a way to stay within the budget of the commissioning ensemble.
