Polyarts are changemakers – dynamic, groundbreaking and at the forefront of driving change in the evolving classical music ecosystem. The Polyarts philosophy is a no-size-fits-all approach to innovative talent management, built on the core beliefs that diversity and equality are the foundation of great art.
Polyarts is positioned internationally as music industry disruptors with an energized approach and expansive worldwide network.
Polyarts has an established roster of diverse, multi-faceted artists and projects leading on the cutting edge of new, classical and orchestral music, which includes composers, performers, curators and creators that span Symphonic, Pop and Festival Performance, Film, Gaming, Visual Arts, Tech, Sports, Theatre, Design and Speaking Events.
Birdsong Music Publishing is a full, bespoke publishing and (if needed) management service that is tailored to the composer’s needs.
We help composers to find and negotiate commissioning opportunities, to get engaged in interesting projects and to secure sync deals. In addition, our team can offer individual composer management offering the opportunity to benefit from the additional support a full service management company can offer.
We make sheet music available and hire out scores and, importantly, we provide efficient and thorough royalty collection and distribution through our partnership with Faber Music.
Our aim is to protect copyright, nurture development and encourage creativity. We ensure that the composer’s work is not only being properly and professionally managed but also that income is both generated and collected. We work with composers through every aspect of their careers from the creative to the commercial.

Effective marketing and promotion is a vital component in any career. We help artists develop a strategy that plays to their strengths, offering guidance on photography, PR, websites and social media. We also design and produce print and digital materials to support tours and projects. Our understanding of media rights and recording helps clients navigate the challenges and opportunities presented by a rapidly changing industry.
To support artists in the ever-changing digital landscape, we offer a social media and website management service to help them build their digital presence in a way that is natural and authentic to them. Through this service, we aim to create, curate and strategically grow a consistent brand presence for artists, bringing together all the various facets of an artist’s career and personality.
It is vitally important that creators have outlets where their work can not only be seen and heard but also where they can get fairly paid. This is why we launched a streaming and digital content platform for classical music and the arts: Virtual Circle.
Other initiatives, such as HP Group’s Google Arts & Culture page and The Culture Bar podcast series, illustrate our commitment to introducing classical music and the arts to new and wider audiences through a hub of digitised culture.
Creative Consultancy Services
We work with a wide range of cultural institutions to help them develop exciting content, realise innovative projects and formulate creative responses to the challenges they face.
Drawing upon a wealth of experience and expertise across the company – including artistic planning, tour and project management, marketing, sponsorship, strategic, financial and organisational planning and structuring – we put together a bespoke team for each project to work in partnership with all stakeholders to set out objectives and deliver real change.
We feel it‘s vital to support and nurture young talent.
In 2019 we launched the HarrisonParrott Foundation to create initiatives that champion diversity and inclusivity within the arts. We are delighted to partner with Tri-Borough Music Hub and Creative Access to help us achieve our goals.
We also partner with Polyarts through their Talent Development Programme.
We support our staff in their charitable work – not just financially, but in providing a flexible working environment that gives them time to help the good causes they feel passionate about.
We believe in the power of classical music and the arts to make real changes to the climate emergency.
In 2019, we set up an internal Environmental Working Group which meets every quarter to discuss HP Group’s carbon footprint and reduction strategies, keeping our ‘offices green’, and filtering our knowledge to our artists and touring clients.
HarrisonParrott Group was carbon footprint assessed for the third time in January 2023 by Carbon Footprint Ltd, and has been awarded a Carbon Neutral Plus status for carbon offsetting.

In 2021, we signed Music Declares Emergency’s declaration as part of our commitment to a sustainable future here.
