What are we doing?


The Diversity Initiative is a new organization based in Austin, Texas. We will be holding a brand new call for scores to promote the incredible music being written by underrepresented composers. We will be focusing on different sizes of chamber music for brass.

This Summer, we will be performing three unique concerts focused on the best works submitted alongside other significant works for brass written by composers of underrepresented communities.  

Our Call for Scores will feature 5 categories, each with a $500 1st place prize and a $200 2nd place prize.

We look forward to hearing your submissions! 

This has been made possible by a generous grant from the Rainwater Fund for American Music.
