PARMA Plays PARMA

Since the beginning, PARMA has worked to weave together a tightly-knit family of artists and composers. When an artist decides to work with PARMA, they're welcomed into that family. 

Over the years, the PARMA community of artists has grown into a vast network of incredibly talented performers and composers. 
The results are endless possibilities for sweet, sweet collaboration. 

This is evident throughout the catalog of albums we have released since 2008. We continue to see more and more collaborations throughout all of our releases. There are many instances of such collaboration on some of our newest releases!


BLURRED BOUNDARIES by the Apollo Chamber Players features works by PARMA composers Libby Larsen and Marty Regan; IN TIMES OF TORMENT by Yves Ramette features PARMA cellist Carmine Miranda; and REACT by Francesca Arnone & Mikylah McTeer features works by PARMA composer Russell Pinkston.


There are too many instances of PARMA performers playing PARMA composers to list, so without further ado, please enjoy this curated playlist of pure PARMA collaboration!
