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 info@CrossingBordersMusic.org, at CrossingBordersMusic.org/contact, or through the Crossing Borders Music Facebook page (Facebook.com/CrossingBordersMusic). Scores should be received by November 15, 2017.
