Call for Scores: Refugee Composers and Compositions for or 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 info@CrossingBordersMusic.org, at CrossingBordersMusic.org/contact, or through the Crossing Borders Music Facebook page (Facebook.com/CrossingBordersMusic). Scores should be received by January 1, 2018.
