Me, You, and ASCAP
"The livelihood of composers depends on a variety of (mostly small) sources of income. One of these is performance royalties, which are administered by non-profit organizations such as ASCAP. Composers receive income based on reported performances of their music - but it's usually up to the performers and composers to submit the reports." -Abbie Betinis, composer and publisher
As Abbie says, it is up to the composers to submit the performances of their works, so help us out and submit a concert! Don't worry; reporting a performance costs you nothing: Concert halls and Universities already purchase annual blanket licenses (or site licenses), which cover all performances that occur there.
Although public schools and churches are exempt from having to buy site licenses, performances there do help determine the amount of annual awards to composers. Thanks for taking the time to submit your information!
