Overview of PML Submission Process

Call for UIL Large Ensemble Submissions

The University Interscholastic League accepts new large ensemble submissions for inclusion in the UIL Prescribed Music List from September 1 through December 1. This document serves as the repertoire guide for the approximately 500,000 music students and 3,800 performing organizations in the state of Texas.  You can view the current PML at:

http://www.uiltexas.org/music/pml

The selection committees welcome the opportunity to review any current year releases for concert band, choir, string and full orchestra. Music published prior to the current year will not be considered unless it has not been recently submitted. Additions to the list will appear in the PML in the fall of the year following consideration.

Publishers are requested to use the following procedures for submissions:

Concert Music for Band, Choir, and Orchestra

Large ensemble concert music will be submitted electronically. The following link will take you to the portal where you can submit a pdf of scores plus a link to online recordings. If no recording link is available you will have the option of submitting an mp3 with the score.
