FNMC New Music Festival

Flute New Music Consortium is accepting proposals for the inaugural FNMC New Music Festival on January 17-19, 2020 at Stony Brook University. The mission of the festival is to celebrate new music and to foster communication and collaboration between performers and composers. This event also includes a residency with flutist and composer Valerie Coleman and will feature the premiere of Coleman’s newly commissioned work for flute and piano.

We welcome performances and lecture recitals that feature works by living composers or pieces composed in the last 50 years, as well as workshops, panel discussions, and lectures relevant to performers and composers of the twenty-first century. Performers may submit a single piece or multiple pieces for consideration. Presentations and workshops should be no longer than 50 minutes in length.

Proposal Deadline: September 15, 2019, 11:59pm EST. Presenters/performers will be notified via email by November 1, 2019. Accepted performers and presenters are responsible for providing their own transportation/accommodations and will be expected to register for the festival ($40 for non-FNMC members and $20 for current members).
