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.
The submission portal for the 2021-2022 school year is now closed.
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:
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.
As part of a Diversity Initiative in music literature, the UIL encourages the submission of works from underrepresented composer groups and/or cultures. The University Interscholastic League (UIL) does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, disability, or age in its programs.
Publishers are requested to use the following procedures for submissions:
