CALL FOR SCORES: Verdant Vibes is seeking recently composed scores to perform on its fifth concert season beginning Fall 2019. Concerts will take place in unique venues around Providence and greater New England, featuring the Verdant Vibes Ensemble along with special guest performers from the local and regional experimental, electronic, and new music scenes. We remain dedicated to presenting music from Rhode Island-based/native composers, but also invite composers from around the world to participate.

Pieces may be up to 15 minutes in duration, scored for one or more performers drawn from the following instruments: clarinet/bass clarinet (1 player), violin (2 players), viola, cello, double bass, percussion, piano/synth/accordion (1 player), electric guitar, electronics, and/or multimedia. The addition of one or two other instruments/voices may be possible, but your piece is more likely to be programmed if it fits our core instrumentation.

Composers may submit up to two works via links to scores in PDF format and streaming audio or video recordings. MIDI is ok, please make sure files remain accessible through September 1. Please do not send submission materials via email. All links to scores and streaming recordings must not require download or login (Soundcloud, YouTube, Public link in Google Drive or Dropbox, etc.).

CALL FOR COLLABORATIONS: If you would instead like to propose a collaboration, please upload various work samples and tell us about your ideas in the "Call for Collaborations" field below. Verdant Vibes has worked with dancers, video artists, poets, and improvisational musicians, and invites proposals from all artists who are interested in working with us. There is limited funding to support these collaborations. Please scroll down to the bottom of the form for instructions on how to submit this type of proposal.

Participants will be notified of results by September 15. Parts (PDF) for selected works must be received by October 1, 2018. All works will be given equal consideration, regardless of the age, race, gender identity, sexual orientation, or nationality of the composer. Verdant Vibes strives to present a diverse spectrum of voices.

If your piece/collaborative proposal is selected, we invite you to join us for the performance. We are not able to cover travel costs, but we can likely find you a place to stay among our ensemble members. We welcome questions via email: info@verdantvibes.com. DO NOT SUBMIT MATERIALS VIA EMAIL; please use the online form.

Our call for scores will always be FREE. Please consider supporting our mission of making new music/art and employing artists, by making a tax-deductible donation here: https://www.fracturedatlas.org/site/fiscal/profile?id=13447 — we’ll send you a free sticker as small thanks!
