The Mirari Brass Quintet is pleased to announce its first Call for Scores. Composers are encouraged to submit a completed work from one or both of the following categories for consideration, with the winning works posted on social media and our website and/or programmed on our 2021-2022 concert season. Each composition must be written for the brass quintet (2 trumpets, 1 horn, 1 trombone, 1 tuba) and have been composed within the last 10 years.
Category #1: This piece is to be reflective of the current COVID-19 situation, meaning it needs to be a piece we can record our parts separately (one at a time, in different locations). This work should be between 1-2 minutes in length. The theme for this piece should be something representative of or encapsulate the current climate during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Category #2: This piece should be written for live performance (all of Mirari in the same place). This work should be a minimum of eight (8) minutes in length. This work will be included in our “Renewed, Reused, Recycled” program, which includes works that have taken on a new life in some way. Composers are free to interpret that theme as they see fit.
The composer of the winning work will receive:
-The Category #1 winner will receive a web premiere broadcasted on our social media pages and posted on our website, as well as a $250 prize.
-The Category #2 winner will receive a live performance at an upcoming Mirari Brass Quintet concert, as well as a $1000 prize.
-The winning composer(s) will be provided with a recording, which will also be posted on our website and social media pages.
