The Los Angeles Chapter of the National Association of Composers is pleased to invite its members to participate in a concert Sunday afternoon, January 21, 2018 at the Recital Hall, California State University Northridge, 2 pm. The concert will include a performance by Dr. Deborah Kavasch of Beverly Grigsby’s work for soprano and computer music, Shakti, in celebration of Beverly Grigsby’s 90th birthday. We invite you to propose a piece and specific performers for this program, within the following parameter. Preference will be given to works related to Beverly Grigsby’s pioneering work in electronic, computer and experimental music.

Works of any style for any instrumentation (up to five performers) with durations up to 15 minutes are welcome. CSUN is making a piano and audio playback (pre-recorded cd) available to us for the concert. Composers are invited to perform their own music or propose performers. We have a limited budget to pay honorariums to the musicians of $100 each. Please indicate the number of players, that they have agreed to this fee, and are available for that date and time. NACUSA-LA will cover publicity and programs.
