Welcome to NACUSA-LA

National Association of Composers - USA (L.A. Chapter)

Who are we?

NACUSA-LA creates live concerts.

A community of composers and performers where all styles and all backgrounds are welcomed. A place to be heard and to learn more about the craft and art we love.


An indie friendly community of composers and performers who care about concert music and who help each other succeed.


Producing a live concert is a lot of work, we do most of the heavy lifting for you.


Improve skills and learn from masters. Topics from mockups to Finale to advanced performance techniques to ultramodern rhythmic concepts and monetization.
