Concord Music’s publishing business was transformed in 2017 when it acquired Imagem Music Group and integrated it with Concord’s existing publishing operation, The Bicycle Music Company. This combination resulted in a catalog of over 390,000 copyrighted works, spanning all musical genres and containing many of the world’s most celebrated compositions. Concord Music also supports a diverse group of current composers and songwriters who are continually creating important and commercially-successful new musical works. With the Imagem acquisition, Concord Music also added Boosey & Hawkes, the world’s leading specialist classical music publisher, and the legendary Rodgers & Hammerstein Organization. In 2018, Concord Music added the renowned musical theatre library, Tams-Witmark, to its roster.
