Palco.co is a marketplace that connects musicians with music from around the world.

Developed by the Musintec company, Palco allows arrangers to upload their original scores and band leaders, students, researchers, and anyone interested can buy them. Arrangers earn a percentage of each copy sold. Traditionally, arrangers have been invisible despite their pivotal role in the music industry. Palco.co changes that and features a team that supports and catalogues arrangers’ music.

Musintec founders include Puerto Rican producer and arranger Israel Tanenbaum, who has more than 25 years of experience in the field, and intellectual property specialist Andrés Izquierdo. The company has partnered with Boston-based company Noteflight to provide online music notation functionality. Learn more about Palco in this presentation.
