Black, Indigenous, People of Colour (BIPOC) composers, music, and musicians
Sources for Discovering Diverse Repertoire
Finding a composer or composition from these or other underrepresented groups may require some additional research. There are many web-based resources that can help identify what exists. Once a composer or work is identified, you can search OneSearch to see if the Music Resource Centre has a physical score or if we have access to it electronically. If we don't have it, you can try Document Delivery or suggest a purchase by emailing email@example.com.
