University of Tennessee Contemporary Music Festival 2017 Call for Scores

THE UNIVERSITY OF TENNESSEE
CONTEMPORARY MUSIC FESTIVAL

OCTOBER 18-20, 2017

CALL FOR SCORES AND PAPERS

The School of Music at The University of Tennessee, Knoxville announces its third annual Contemporary Music Festival to be held October 18-20, 2017 at the Natalie L. Haslam Music Center. We are implementing a call for scores as well as a call for papers/presentations.

We have two concerts planned for our call; one for UTK Players and one for composers who plan to bring their own performers.
Composers may submit up to two scores for consideration for the UTK Players call, and one score for consideration for the Composer/Performer call. There is no time limit, but works under 10 minutes are more likely to be programmed to allow for a wide selection. Only one score per composer may be selected for inclusion at the conference.

Our UTK Players instrumentation includes: Flute, Trumpet, Trombone (2), Tuba, Cello (multiple), and 2-6 percussionists. Scores may utilize as few as two instruments or as many as the entire ensemble. Electroacoustic works (stereo playback) are also welcome. Fixed media electronic works are acceptable provided that they are stereo playback.

The Composer/Performer call includes all acoustic possibilities, fixed media, and electroacoustic with fixed media, stereo playback.
