The project that started it all, the Composer Diversity Database provides users the ability to search and browse for composers from underrepresented groups using a myriad of over 30 categories. Websites and online resources connected to almost 4,000 composers can be explored through this easy to use online tool.
The Institute for Composer Diversity’s Master Database Builder, Christian Michael Folk, has singlehandedly created this important database of works for wind band and chamber wind ensembles. This new database provides search criteria including duration, instrumentation, location, composer demographics and more.
search. program. perform. repeat.
Simply click one or multiple checkboxes, select a location, or enter a name. Each action will filter only the names that fall under that category. Combining filters (i.e. living-female-chorus-South Asian) is a very effective strategy when browsing or searching the databases.
