Juventas New Music Ensemble announces its Spring/Summer Semi-Annual Call for Scores. At least one composer may win the opportunity to have their work programmed in the 2014-2015 season. Other compositions from this call may go into Juventas’ repertoire for programming in future seasons. Juventas reserves the right to choose no winner if an entry of sufficient quality is not found.
For the upcoming season, Juventas is seeking chamber works by young, living composers for any instrumentation or length. However, preference will be given to works that draw on the Juventas core instrumentation: flute (including piccolo and/or alto flute), clarinet (including Eb, Bb, and bass clarinet), violin, viola, cello, piano, and percussion. For the upcoming season(s), we are especially interested in: Works for any combination of string instruments and/or flute influenced by non-western styles; solo works for any Juventas core instrument; Opera scenes or other staged works with piano or 1-3 instruments; Full-length opera for our annual opera project. Additionally, all composers must be age 35 or under as of January 1st of the present year to be eligible for consideration.
The application deadline is July 11, 2014.
Details and application instructions are available at www.JuventasMusic.com. Any additional questions or comments can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to viewing and considering your scores, and wish you the absolute best.
Juventas New Music Ensemble
Juventas New Music Ensemble voices the musical culture of the present by featuring repertoire of composers age 35 and under. Based in Boston, Massachusetts, the ensemble is a collective of several dozen musicians that form a wide array of instrumentations – both traditional and non-traditional.
Since its founding in 2005, Juventas has performed the work of over 100 composers in exhilarating concerts that showcase the diversity of contemporary music. From lyrical melodies to recorded sounds from outer space, Juventas performances the most engaging music of a new generation. With over 75 performances under its belt, the ensemble has steadily gained recognition. The Boston Globe has five times featured Juventas as a “Classical Music Pick,” and the group has been invited to a wide range of events, including the Art Fair of Boston and a global summit for Images and Voices of Hope in New York.
