Dr. Tim Shade from Wichita State University is leading this new consortium commission for a SYMPHONY NO. 2 for Wind Ensemble. We have a terrific group of commissioners already and space is still available for more. The music will be ready for performance in October 2019. The buy-in for the consortium is $1,000. and payments can be made flexible. Money should not hold anyone back who wants to be involved. If you’re interested, we’ll find a creative form of payment.


It’s been 20 years since I wrote my Symphony No. 1 “Blue” in 1999 and I feel ready for this new direction. I’ve been sketching for 2 months and am ready for the next phase in the process. The work will be completed by the end of the summer. If you have any questions or want to join the consortium please contact Tim or myself at: timothy.shade@wichita.edu or jsyler61@gmail.com
