All of our percussion commissions are portable, defined as one or two trips from the car to the venue. We focus on accessible instrumentation to allow those who do not own or have access to expensive instruments to participate.


All of our clarinet commissions can be performed on any clarinet. For duos, this means any two same clarinets. This allows the option to perform works on specialty clarinets, while allowing performers without access to those instruments to participate.

New Works Project is looking for volunteers and board members.


Areas for volunteer participation include marketing, design, donor relations, community engagement, education, fundraising, and more! We can help you build new skills or you can use your current strengths to contribute to our program.

"My favorite part of volunteering is that I not only get to be a part of a community that values and supports the many underrepresented voices in composition but I also get to advocate for those voices and share their incredible work with musicians all over the world."

Paulina Michels, Program Manager


"The New Works Project brings a community together around making new art. It's an affordable way for me to bring new music into the world."

Scott Farkas, Commissioner
