Re: Submitting Program Information

The Association of Concert Bands collects program information from participating member bands and submits it to ASCAP and BMI at the end of each year as part of the sub-licensing agreement.

Click here to read our FAQ and learn more about how your band, with ACB membership and ACB Blanket Performance License with BMI and ASCAP, can take advantage of the licensing agreement.

The easiest way to provide this information to both ASCAP and BMI is to send the information electronically. On this page of the ACB website, you will find the required-spreadsheet for your use in compiling your current year's program information. Complete this form and send it to programs@acbands.org at the end of the year. (You may send information up to January 31st for the previous year.)

The program information is needed for the composers, arrangers, and publishers to be credited appropriately. Please include all works performed, (published and manuscripts) at all concerts, including free concerts and civic events.
