The Nebraska Composers Alliance

Supporting the work of Nebraska’s composers.




We are pleased you have visited the Nebraska Composers Alliance

web site and hope that this resource will be of benefit to you.

Our membership is diverse and ranges from the hobbyist to the career composer. We are proud to support active working composers and provide guidance for music educators in promoting music composition in their classrooms.

The Nebraska Composers Alliance is pleased to be an advocate for some of the finest composers and educators working today.

From this web site, you will be able to make connections with Nebraska Composers, learn about commissioning a piece of music, and connect to resources for integrating composition into school music programs.
