Call for Scores!

We’re holding a call for scores with Compass New Music, (formerly the Listening to Ladies Concert Series)!

Info is below, go to http://listeningtoladies.com/compassnewmusic/ to submit.

Composers of any age, nationality, or stage of their careers who identify as women, nonbinary, or genderfluid are invited to submit scores for a concert in Toledo, Ohio which will take place on February 18th, 2018. The program will showcase approximately three to four pieces (the number is flexible and depends upon the pool of submissions) selected from this Call for Scores, alongside two pre-selected pieces.

Pieces should be at least five minutes long, with no strict cap on maximum length. We ask that you keep in mind this concert will have approximately six works on it, so very lengthy pieces may not be appropriate. You may submit only one piece. Pieces may have been previously performed. There is no fee to submit.

Pieces need to include all or a subset of two or three (no solo works) of the following instrumentation:

1 Soprano (range: G3-D6)

1 Flute (all but the contrabass flute are available)

1 Clarinet (all available)

Percussion (no keyboard percussion, as instruments must fit in a car)

NOTE: Electronics, including fixed media, live electronics, and visual electronic elements (projections, videos) are unfortunately not available.

Compass New Music Series (formerly the Listening to Ladies concert series) partners with ensembles to help showcase new music by those who due to their gender identities experience disenfranchisement under the patriarchy, which in the classical/new music world continues to support and showcase primarily cisgender males.
