Tiffany Ng on Commissioning Carillon Music

Alum Tiffany Ng’s article “Commissioning Carillion Music: A Guide to Getting Started” offers advice on getting started, obtaining funding, the process, the world premiere, and publication of the commissioned work.

Why commission new carillon music? Bringing a new musical work to life can be one of the most rewarding experiences of being a musician.
