Composer Diversity Database

About the project

The Composer Diversity Database was created to allow conductors, performers, presenters, educators, and researchers a tool with which to expand and broaden their scope of composers and repertoire.

In order to use the database, simply click one or multiple checkboxes at the top of the page. Each checkbox will filter only the names that fall under that category. Multiple categories may be selected—in fact, a search with several different filters (i.e. living-female-chorus-South Asian) may be the most efficient way to use the database.

Note: The Medium/Subgenre section was added much later in the database construction process and it is not yet complete. Therefore, there are a number of composers who have written works for specific subgenres who may not yet come up in searches. Please be patient as we complete this sizable task, and feel free to use the form below to alert us to any adjustments that may need to be made.
