Verdant Vibes

CALL FOR SCORES: Verdant Vibes is seeking recently composed scores to perform on its third concert season beginning Fall 2017. Concerts will take place in unique venues around Providence, 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; please contact with specific questions.

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. Link to streaming recordings that do not require download (Soundcloud, YouTube, 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. 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.


Participants will be notified of results by September 15. Parts (PDF) for selected works must be received by October 1, 2017. 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.

We welcome questions via email:
