Since its inception in 2014, New Works Project, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, has been at the forefront of making new music accessible, specifically within the percussion and clarinet communities. Our dedication to removing financial barriers has led to the premiere of over 20 distinctive new works, highlighting our commitment to enhancing the accessibility of contemporary music and its critical role in today’s evolving arts landscape. Through targeted initiatives, we have successfully bridged geographic and socioeconomic divides, supporting both emerging and established talents to ensure that innovative music reaches a diverse audience. Our efforts have been focused on connecting individuals with contemporary composers, nurturing the next generation of musical talent, and contributing significant new works to the global repertoire.


As we celebrate our 10th anniversary, New Works Project is excited to announce a major expansion: by the end of the 2026-2027 season, we will extend our reach to include all instruments, ensembles, and music-making opportunities. This ambitious growth will occur alongside the launch of a new initiative aimed at providing relevant professional development opportunities for musicians and creatives across the musical spectrum. Designed to foster sustainable and thriving careers in music, this initiative will offer resources, platforms, and a supportive community tailored to the unique needs of today’s artists, educators, performers, and enthusiasts. Through this dual expansion, we are committed to democratizing the creation and performance of new music, facilitating a dynamic ecosystem that nurtures a vibrant array of artists and ensures that new music, unencumbered by traditional barriers, becomes an integral part of our cultural fabric. Join us on this exciting journey towards a future where every voice has the opportunity to contribute to the rich tapestry of contemporary music, enriching the lives of creators and audiences alike.
