About Earplay

Earplay was founded in 1985 by a consortium of composers and performers. Each year, Earplay presents live concerts of challenging music by contemporary composers, including works commissioned specially for Earplay. Commissioning projects have been a cornerstone of Earplay’s history, and Earplay sponsors an annual competition for new compositions. Earplay concerts include pre-concert presentations with composers and discussions of their works to increase audience involvement. Earplay presents superb performances of new works to assist composers in their craft and provides recordings of performances for archival purposes. Earplay is committed to supporting the artistic development of composers, performers and audiences.
