SBO Staff • News • May 2, 2023

Excelcia Music Publishing and its related companies and brands are thrilled to announce exclusive publishing agreements with eleven prominent composers: Carol Brittin Chambers, Sean O’Loughlin, Yukiko NIshimura, Larry Clark, Laura Estes, Jamey Ray, David Samuel, Tyler Arcari, Christina Huss, Matthew R. Putnam, and Peter Blair. Particularly sensitive to, experienced with and passionate about the needs and educational aspirations of young musicians, these eleven composers are well known for their contributions to Concert Band, String Orchestra, Jazz Ensemble and Choral music literature.

“I am proud that these highly-talented and successful composers chose Excelcia Music Publishing as their home,” exclaims Larry Clark, President.  “As we continue to grow as a company, we are excited about the synergy that will be created as we partner with these and other composers on an exclusive basis.  These arrangements position our composers – and our company – well for years to come.”

The publisher will continue to actively seek out, publish and promote works from a wide range of talented and dynamic composers on a non-exclusive basis, as it has since its founding in 2018.  Today’s announcement highlights a new component to its business model and vision, and Excelcia Music Publishing will explore new exclusive arrangements in the future.

“This is an exciting time for us as we continue to strengthen relationships with writers who we have worked with since the beginning.  At Excelcia Music Publishing, we have always put composers first in our process, and with today’s announcement, we are taking that commitment even further,” explains Tyler Arcari, Director of Music Production and Editing.  “As we move ahead, we are excited to create and maintain long-lasting relationships with new and talented voices in both exclusive and non-exclusive arrangements.”
