Call for Scores: African Women Composers

African Women Composers:

We need you!

Crossing Borders Music is planning a concert of women composers from under-recognized cultures from around the world. We’d like to hear from you what it’s like being an African woman composer, and to program your chamber music compositions in a concert in Chicago, IL, USA, in early 2018.Crossing Borders Music performs chamber music works – most often music for strings 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, please contact Crossing Borders Music at, at, or through the Crossing Borders Music Facebook page ( Scores should be received by November 15, 2017.
