American Composers Orchestra Launches EarShot Publishing

Launched in collaboration with Boosey & Hawkes, this initiative will support eight composers in its inaugural year


The American Composers Orchestra (ACO) has announced the launch of EarShot Publishing, a new initiative in collaboration with Boosey & Hawkes. The venture will administer the rights for select orchestral works that have been developed through the ACO's EarShot composer advancement programs, which offer readings, fellowships, and other commissioning opportunities.

In its inaugural year, EarShot Publishing will cover eight works by eight composers, as well as arrangements for professional and youth orchestras.

The eight composers who have been selected for the first round are inti figgis-vizueta, Joseph C. Phillips, Jr., Kebra-Seyoun Charles, Michael R. Dudley, Jr., Alyssa Regent, Trevor New, Horacio Fernández Vázquez, and Brittany J. Green.

These composers have also developed teaching modules and lesson plans, which they will get a chance to implement during residencies with community partners and schools.

The initiative has been launched with the help of the Sphinx Venture Fund, which over the past five years has invested $1.5 million into diversity, equity, and inclusion in classical music.

"We are thrilled to partner with Boosey & Hawkes, an international leader in classical music publishing, to administer the EarShot Publishing catalog worldwide," the ACO wrote. "This new partnership, generously powered by the Sphinx Venture Fund, offers ACO the opportunity to provide sustained relationship building and support to EarShot composers while advancing their work on orchestral stages and in community spaces nationwide."
