ICEBERG New Music 2018-19 Call for Scores

ICEBERG New Music's 2018-19 Call for Scores is now open!
Submissions are due no later than January 1, 2019.

OVERVIEW

Composers of any age or nationality are invited to submit scores for one or both of ICEBERG's partner ensembles, Ekmeles (http://ekmeles.com/) and Contemporaneous (https://www.contemporaneous.org/). Up to four winning composers (at least one for each ensemble) will be selected to have their works performed as part of our 2018-19 season at the DiMenna Center for Classical Music in New York City. There are no restrictions on the works submitted – pieces may have been previously performed, recorded, and/or awarded. In keeping with ICEBERG's mission of promoting stylistic diversity, composers are encouraged to submit their music regardless of compositional style – anything from pop songs to works of new complexity are welcome, and will be considered equally.

The winning work(s) for Ekmeles will be performed March 9, 2019. The winning work(s) for Contemporaneous will be performed April 26, 2019. These performances will take place at the DiMenna Center for Classical Music in New York City.
