We create unique performance opportunities for female artists who wish to express the strength, unique vision, and individuality of their art.
Founded in 2015, The Pleiades Project was inspired by hundreds of dedicated female artists that are gifted, creative, and true examples of what it means to bring art and beauty into the world. We wanted to create a space that was dedicated to those artists, as well as a space that could bring the art that we are excited about to new audiences.
As artists working in a digital world, we are passionate about bringing our art form to a wide and diverse audience. To that end, we are creating short films that integrate classical music and film in a creative and seamless way. We are committed to working with talented female creatives, including directors, designers, editors, engineers, and crew members.

Frequently Asked Questions
How do I pitch a project?
We're always looking for exciting projects to bring to life! Right now, we're most interested in public domain works by underrepresented women composers, bold crossover in music theatre, and amplifying the work of early career women composers. If this is you, send us an email at [email protected] and tell us about your idea!
Are there fees to audition?
At The Pleiades Project, we believe that no artist should ever have to pay an entrance fee to be heard. When we hold auditions, they are always free of charge.
Where are you located?
Most of our staff are in the New York City Metro area, but we have worked in Connecticut, Washinton DC, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey.
Why do you make films?
Because we believe in getting creative when it comes to music! From the very beginning, we wanted to make music and collaborate with other creators in as many ways as possible. Films give us the chance to take a fresh look at musical experiences. Also, it's fun!
How do you say "Pleaides"?
Ready? Here we go. "Plee-Ah-Deeze." It doesn't rhme with Pilates. Fun fact! The Pleiades constellation is also known as the Seven Sisters, and after the moon, was one of the most important constellations in early astronomy.
