The BRP ColourFULL Repertoire List

The Band Room Podcast has officially taken the ColourFULL Music pledge! This means that we are committed to prioritizing cultural, generational, and gender diversity in the guests we invite on our podcast. We will encourage our community to consider taking the pledge as well. 

This list is a selection of ColourFULL band repertoire by composers who have been guests on the Band Room Podcast. We hope this will be useful for ensemble directors looking to diversify their programming and learn about living composers. When possible, we’ve included pieces from multiple grade levels. Be sure to also listen to our interview with each composer!
