Commissions



New Compositions and Unique Arrangements

Request a new composition of any length, instrumentation, style, and level for concert, theatre, dance, opera, film, or special event. Valarie Morris enjoys collaborating with other artists and composes music for solos and small ensembles and for orchestra, band, and chorus.

New Mexico is the perfect place for me to compose music with its ever-changing skyscapes and their amazing colors, the light on the mesas, and the shapes of the mountains. All inspiration for my musical pallette of sounds.—Valarie Morris

If you need a music arrangement for a special project or occasion, please let us know the details. Ms. Morris is happy to discuss the project with you to create a unique arrangement that fits your needs.

To tell us about your project and your ideas about the music you want, send email or call us at 505.992.2524.
