L'abri Trio: 52 Weeks of New Music

The L'abri Trio (saxophone, cello, piano) is seeking submissions for 52 Weeks of New Music! We are creating a year-long series of professional videos to showcase the creative and diverse voices of today’s composers to the world. Each selected composer and their work will be promoted via our social media platforms on a weekly basis and will receive a high-quality video and recording. We are seeking submissions of works for our complete trio (or subset). After being selected, we will work closely with each composer to create a video that best showcases their artistic voice. Once the project is complete, all selected composers will be considered for future commissions and recordings with L'abri.

Requirements:
• Works must be one minute in duration or, in most cases, an excerpt of a larger work
• Works need not be composed specifically for this project, though we welcome compositions written specifically for this undertaking
• While it is preferred that works are for L'abri full instrumentation, we will also accept compositions with subsets of our
instrumentation
• For excerpted compositions, composers will work closely with L'abri Trio to select music that best exemplifies their unique voice
• Please send your materials (full score, parts, and biography) in one email to labri.52weeks@gmail.com

About L'abri Trio:
The L’abri Trio is a unique collaboration of saxophone, cello, and piano founded in 2012 by three outstanding musicians at the Peabody Conservatory. The ensemble dedicated to new interpretations of traditional music and to exploring new music with the eclectic sounds of their unique instrumentation. The L’abri has reimagined classics from Bach, Beethoven, Schumann, Poulenc, and Piazzolla while commissioning new works from some of today’s most imaginative composers. In July 2018, the Trio released its latest album, Trois Couleurs: Music of Beethoven, Poulenc, and Piazzolla, the first release on P Classics’ new US classical record label. L’abri Trio has been selected as a finalist for the 2018 Pro Musicis International Award. This sonorous ensemble has performed at such distinguished American venues as the Mansion at Strathmore, the 37th International Saxophone Symposium, Johns Hopkins University’s Shriver Hall, the Maryland Institute College of Art, the Peabody Conservatory, the Embassy of South Korea Cultural Center, the Academy Art Museum, as well as appearances abroad in Seoul, South Korea.
