The American Music Center and American Composers Forum have put together a comprehensive survey with the goal of gathering current data about contemporary composers. Unlike other studies which recently hit the classical music business, I sincerely feel that this study aims to be purely quantitative and will use the raw data to design programs and strategic goals that will best serve their constituents.
As such, if you are a composer or know one who should complete this study, then continue to read the programs s official announcement and follow (or forward) a link to the survey…
New Music Needs Your Voice
The American Music Center (AMC) and American Composers Forum (ACF) have teamed up with Columbia University’s Research Center for Arts and Culture to conduct the first major study of living composers. The study aims to gather important data to guide our efforts in better serving and advocating for composers of all styles and backgrounds.
If you are a composer, you can be a part of this important research. We invite you to contribute to the study by filling out the online survey at the link below. The survey is estimated to take 20 minutes of your time. Your participation will broaden the study’s reach and give us a better understanding of current trends in the field. Thank you for helping us to help composers (click here to take the survey).
