Keveli Music Commission Projects

general information...

Commissioning works can be a financially daunting undertaking, but Keveli Music finds creative opportunities to support commissioning projects at all levels. Keveli Music has been involved with commissions from K-12 school ensembles to major symphony orchestras. Continually creating performance and commissioning consortia opportunities, Keveli Music has made the process of commissioning an affordable option, regardless of ensemble size or level.


participation options...

There are three options in which you can participate in the commissioning of a new Keveli Music work:

  • Initiate a stand-alone commission - You are the sole commissioning agent for a new composition;
  • Initiate a consortium commission - You are the "lead" member of a consortium that includes no less than two commissioning agents;
  • Join an existing consortium project - Simply select an "open" consortium project (from the listing below) that fits your needs.

Keveli Music is dedicated to forming consortium commissioning projects in order to give performing organizations and soloists the opportunity to participate in the commissioning process without paying large commissioning fees. This is accomplished by asking multiple members of a consortium to "split" the commissioning fee. Keveli Music wants your commissioning experience to be a successful one and maintains special project coordinators that will assist you in forming your consortium. Keveli Music is pleased to present the following special projects coordinators: Dr. Danh Pham, Ms. Ashley Eddings, and Mr. Kit Mills.


the next step...

The most important step to take is to contact Keveli Music so that all aspects of the project, including commissioning fees, can aid in your decision. The commissioning process can take between 1 and 3 years to come to fruition once initial contact is made and all details for your project have been outlined. The completion timeline is dependent on the relative complexity and details required of each work. Your project is officially added to the Keveli Music Open Commissions list once you give approval to move forward. Contact Keveli Music to begin the process that will lead to a musical legacy on your behalf!


Keveli Music Open Commission Projects

The following list of "open" commissions represent those consortium projects that are currently in the creation stage (or recently completed) and are still accepting consortium members. If you are interested in becoming a consortium member for any of these open projects (those marked as "consortium"projects) then contact Keveli Music immediately. Please note that open commissions at the top of this listing expire prior to each subsequent entry. The "expiration" dates are based on when a consortium is no longer accepting new members.
