Support the music at American Composers Alliance


The American Composers Alliance manages a major collection of American concert music with a curated catalog of over 12,000 scores from a diverse group of more than 300 American composers of the 20th/21st centuries. ACA introduces new works, preserves historical works, and develops innovative ways to increase awareness, performance opportunities, and public engagement with this unique catalog, which is available worldwide in print and electronic editions.

ACA's music catalog—a continuum of creativity from ACA's founding to the present—is a living growing treasure of American cultural heritage. Your support can help us create access to historical works in this collection, support and promote the work of affiliated composers and form commissioning partnerships that can nurture new music as a force in American cultural life.

ACA's non-profit status enables greater focus on services for composers, performers, researchers, arts advocates, and educators, and increasing public access and appreciation of the music of our time. Your gift can help us:

  • create new digital and print editions of manuscript and historical works by a diverse group of American composers.

  • partner with organizations to commission new works from emerging and established composers of color.

  • support for ACA staff to broaden the scope of professional endeavors and enhance access to the ever-growing catalog for performing organizations and academic institutions.

Please help us with our mission to enhance the reach of this extraordinary and constantly growing collection of outstanding new music.
