Each year composers of any age from all over the UK are invited to submit pieces to the spnm reading panel. Composers of all kinds of music have an opportunity to have their work put on a shortlist and publicised by spnm in our Composer's Brochure. Works by shortlisted composers from the basis for spnm's activity throughout the UK.

The full spnm shortlist is listed in this section of the web site. Click on a work for more information. If you are interested in finding out more about any of these works please contact us and we will be delighted to help!
