Dear Fellow Musicians,
Please consider this your official invitation to submit performance ideas for the 2015 Newfound Music Festival. Dates this year are February 4-6, 2015. Our composer-in-residence this year is Mark Duggan. He has composed a wealth of music, specifically for both gamelan and percussion. Building on the percussion-centric festival, we will also be joined by the Toronto percussion quartet TorQ. They will be performing the regional premiere of Dinuk Wijeratne’s piece, "Invisible Cities", with the MUN Wind Ensemble.
Please know that due to Mark’s instrument-specific catalogue and the inclusion of TorQ, the spaces we have are somewhat limited, and the selection process is expected to be competitive. Apply early and make a compelling case!
Here is some info to help in your submission:
1. What kind of piece can I submit?
Anything contemporary (20th / 21st Century, with a preference for recent compositions, including premieres).
2. Who can apply?
Anyone affiliated with the MUN School of Music. This includes faculty, students, composers, performers, and community members.
Submission deadline: October 15 2014.
The link for submission is available online only:
We look forward to sharing a wonderful week of contemporary music with you.
