Quiet City Chamber Ensemble Call for Scores
The Quiet City Chamber Ensemble is excited to announce its first ever call for scores. We invite composers to participate in our 2014-2015 concert season by submitting chamber works for our unique instrumentation (saxophone, clarinet, trumpet and piano).
Based on the original instrumentation for Aaron Copland’s Quiet City, The Quiet City Chamber Ensemble was formed by Christopher Brellochs in 2010. Brellochs crafted a concert version of Quiet City using the unpublished manuscript of the incidental music, which included previously unheard material. Their recording, Quiet City has been well received with significant national radio play and features on APM’s Performance Today and NPR’s Weekend Edition.
The call for scores is designed to generate new works for the ensemble’s unique instrumentation. Please visit www.facebook.com/QuietCityChamberEnsemble and www.christopherbrellochs.com to listen to samples of our work. This call is open to all student composers. Works can be of any length but preference will be given to works that are under 15 minutes. Works written for the entire ensemble will be given preference, though works written for subsets (no fewer than three performers) will be considered. The work must be previously unperformed and unpublished.
The winner of the competition will receive rehearsals, premiere, and archival recording by the ensemble in the 2014-2015 season. The work may also be added the permanent repertoire for upcoming tours and future recording. The Quiet City Chamber Ensemble reserves the right to name additional finalists whose work will be considered for future programming. The winner will be chosen by the Quiet City Chamber Ensemble and outside panelists. The results of the competition will be announced on September 1, 2014.
