Now encompassing all of the American Composers Orchestra’s composer advancement initiatives, EarShot is the first ongoing, systematic program for developing relationships between composers and orchestras on the national level. Through EarShot Readings, CoLABoratory fellowships, consortium commissions, and professional development, EarShot ensures a vibrant musical future by investing in creativity today.

Launched by the American Composers Orchestra in 2024, EarShot Publishing will administer the rights for select orchestral works developed through its national EarShot composer advancement initiatives, which include Readings, CoLABoratory Fellowships, and other commissioning opportunities.

American Composers Orchestra has partnered with Boosey & Hawkes, an international leader in classical music publishing, to administer the EarShot Publishing catalog worldwide.

Through this initiative, ACO extends composers’ EarShot experience by providing access to artist-centric publishing agreements and connections to its national network of orchestras.

In the initiative’s first two years, and with support from the Sphinx Organization, ACO will publish the works of 16 Black and Latine composers, commission 16 education modules to accompany each work, and commission 8 new works for youth/school orchestras.
