Call for scores by refugee composers and chamber music scores by composers from under-represented cultures about refugees

Crossing Borders Music is planning a concert of chamber music composed by refugee composers and works by composers from under-recognized cultures who have written works for or about refugees. We want to tell your stories, share your perspectives, and to program your chamber music compositions in a concert in Chicago, IL, USA, in June, 2018. Crossing Borders Music performs chamber music works – most often music for string quartet and/or piano – and the works are typically up to about 20 minutes long. Composers are not typically paid or provided other compensation, but will have their music performed by professional musicians for a large general audience in the Chicago area, accompanied by information about their inspirations and how their cultural background shapes their composition. Crossing Borders Music also typically provides a video of the concert for private use to the composers. For more information or to submit scores (preferably in PDF format), please contact Crossing Borders Music at, at, or through the Crossing Borders Music Facebook page ( Scores should be received by January 1, 2017.
