2018 Junior Composers: Music + Film
“Call for Scores”
In preparation for our summer programs, we are formally inviting our students to compose a film score for instrumental chamber ensemble. These pieces should be 2-4 minutes in length, and should be submitted electronically (via pdf or Finale file) to Seth Custer (email@example.com) no later than June 1, 2018. These pieces will be read by a professional ensemble, and presented along with the film at the 2018 Junior Composers summer programs. Click here for more details.
