New Music Forum is proud to announce the call for scores for the 9th Annual Festival of Contemporary Music. This year the two-concert event will take place on Saturday, July 30 & August 13, 2011 at the Community Music Center in San Francisco.
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.
Attendance at the festival is required. If you are unable to be present at one of the two programming dates, please do not submit an entry. You do not need to be present for both dates.
Upon selection, composers will be asked to provide a brief biography and performance notes of the piece. Selected participants will be required to submit a registration fee of $20. This registration fee is used to help defray the cost of the venue, recording and program printing. Do not send the fee now.
Composers are invited to submit up to two (2) works for consideration. Please note that the Community Music Center can provide up to two pianos and a harpsichord, but no organ. Acceptable instrumentations include vocal, piano and instrumental solos or groups. We are happy to accept submissions for large chamber ensembles, but please keep in mind the potential cost of the ensemble.
This year we are pleased to accept online submissions. 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 and send your submissions to the email address below. Please do not email the score and recording directly to us.
For more information regarding online submissions please visit www.newmusicforum.com after February 20, 2011 for complete details.
Submission Deadline: April 3, 2011, 11:59 p.m.
Selected composers will be notified around May 1, 2011, via email.
Please send submissions to: firstname.lastname@example.org
