Judd Greenstein and Kimball Gallagher are looking for a few good proposals for the 2007-2008 season of VIM: TRIBECA.  Proposals may be submitted by performers (instrumental and vocal), composers, ensembles, or mixed-art groups that include music. VIM: TRIBECA is centered around music in the Western classical tradition, Greenstein says, but proposals may be made by any musicians whose work pushes the boundaries of genre, or whose work is affiliated with other traditions.  Download a pdf file with details here.

And get out there and push a genre today.  Just don’t be too noisy.

Our buddy Marvin Rosen will be joined by American composer Eric Ewazen this Wednesday morning, June 20 from 8:30 until 11:00 (eastern time) on the program Classical Discoveries which is celebrating 10 years on the air this summer.  The show can be heard every Wednesday morning from 6:00 until 11:00 on WPRB from Princeton, NJ.  The program is broadcast on line and can be listened  at WPRB.  

Classical Discoveries now has a brand new web address but Marvin hasn’t quite gotten all the furniture and lamps moved so older stuff is still at the old address.  

So, the S21 brain trust (yuk, yuk) has been kicking around some thoughts about doing another live concert this year and one of the ideas we had was maybe striking an alliance with a good new music ensemble.  Simple deal.  You play our concert–your schedule or as a one-off–and we put the considerable promotional and publicity resources of S21 behind your group year-round.  Kind of a play nice with us kids and we’ll make you the Emersons.  Any thoughts?

    Oops, didn’t see that you’d posted that PDF. Thanks a lot for that – I appreciate it.

    Thanks for spreading the word about our series. If people are interested in submitting proposals, please download and read our proposal guidelines:


    We hope to get some interesting submissions from the Seq 21 community!

  3. The Lost Dog New Music Ensemble (part of the Astoria Music Society), which I direct, would be interested in collaborating on a Sequenza21 concert. We are a Pierrot ensemble (with some flexibility) comprised of some of the finest new music specialists in the city. We’re currently developing our website, but I can e-mail you some mp3s or snail a CD if you send me the contact info. Please e-mail me if you’d like to discuss it further. We usually present our season at Tenri, and I’m finalizing next seasons details at the moment.
