CONCORD IS THE INDEPENDENT, WORLDWIDE LEADER IN THE DEVELOPMENT, ACQUISITION, AND MANAGEMENT OF RECORDED MUSIC, MUSIC PUBLISHING, AND THEATRICAL PERFORMANCE RIGHTS.
With offices in Nashville, Los Angeles, New York, London, Berlin and Miami. Concord has a diverse and vibrant roster of active recording artists, composers, and songwriters, and a vast and historic catalog of works by some of the most treasured names in music history.
Concord Theatricals’ Acquisitions and Artistic Development Department drives the acquisitions process for the company to determine which new plays and musicals the company should publish and license. We are committed to furnishing theatres around the country and beyond with desired material for professional theatres, as well as amateur groups and niche markets. As such, the Acquisitions and Artistic Development Department takes in submissions of new scripts, covers plays and musicals, and builds relationships with emerging and established writers and composers. The department also works with other Concord branches to develop original content for the stage and to adapt stage properties for other mediums. Additionally, the Acquisitions and Artistic Development Department is responsible for research into the editorial content of titles in the catalog used for building and populating information on the website.
