New Music Forum would like to invite composers to submit works for consideration for the 10th Annual Festival of Contemporary Music. The Festival will take place on June 23, July 28 and August 18, 2012 in the San Francisco Bay Area. Composers may submit up to two (2) pieces for the Festival. Each piece must fit into one of the following three concert themes:
“On and Off the Keys” Solo Instrumental and Chamber Music: Saturday, June 23, 2012 – Trinity Chapel, Berkeley, CA
“Chamber Wind Celebration” Solo and Chamber music featuring wind instruments: Saturday, July 28, 2012 – Community Music Center, San Francisco, CA
“Composer/Voice” Composers performing their own music -or- chamber music featuring the voice: Saturday, August 18, 2012 – Community Music Center, San Francisco, CA
Attendance at the concert in which your piece is being performed is required. If you cannot attend please do not submit works.
Submission of pieces for the Festival of Contemporary Music is an online process. The preferred file formats are PDF for the score and MP3 for the recording. Please include your contact information including name, address, phone number and email in a separate PDF document. We request that you use a service such as yousendit.com to send your submissions to the email address below. Please do not email the score and recording directly to us.
Composers must provide performers for the selected works. The FCM staff can provide names and contact information of performers; however, it will be the composer’s responsibility to make all necessary arrangements for performance and compensation.
Upon selection, composers will be asked to provide a brief biography, performance notes of the piece and a registration fee of $20. For more details about the three concerts or the online submission process please visit www.newmusicforum.com or send an email to the address below.
Submission Deadline: March 25, 2012, 11:59 p.m.
Selected composers will be notified around April 22, 2012, via email.
