“Adapting and innovating is core to who we are as a publisher, and that is certainly true this year,” said Excelcia Music Publishing President, Larry Clark.  “With the high-quality and musicality of our new band music, our live professional recordings for every new work, directors’ unprecedented access to our composers, and another interactive digital catalog (coming soon),  I’m excited for band directors to see what we are offering to them and their students.”

“‘Moving forward’ and inspiration is what this year’s band catalog is all about, messages that will really resonate for directors, students and audiences,” explains Instrumental Editor, Tyler Arcari.  “As we continue our efforts to publish new and exciting voices in the band world, I’m delighted about the creative new folks joining our roster of exceptionally talented composers this year!”
