BCM International is a consortium of four composers who strive to create high-quality literature for all concert and educational mediums. While diverse in background and stylistic approach, we share a desire to enrich the repertoire with music unbound by traditional thought or idiomatic cliché.

We're all back at our respective homes, still recovering from an eventful week. We'd like to offer a big thank-you to everyone who came by the booth and took time to talk with us and listen to our music. We hope everyone who got a copy of Men of Industry enjoys it as much as we do!

Special thanks to Jeffrey Renshaw and the roundtable of directors we met with on Friday - that was a thoughtful, productive discussion, and we appreciate your invitation to us to participate.

Happy Holidays to everyone - be safe if you travel!

We're all in Chicago finishing up a great week at the Midwest Clinic. Jonathan had a beautiful performance of Moon by Night by the VanderCook College Symphonic Band, everyone and their grandmother is playing Jim's Chaos Theory (including the Tokyo Kosei Winds!!!), I have a reading session of MetaMarch in an hour, and Eric had the premiere of his new work, Lux Aurorum, by the Northview High School Chamber Orchestra. It's been another amazing, exhausting week and it's not over yet! More soon...
