- A PDF score, if necessary (PDF scores can also be sent as an attachment)
- An audio recording (MIDI realizations are acceptable)
- A PDF document listing the name of the composer, title of the piece, instrumentation, duration, short biographical statement, and program notes.
Selected composers will be notified in early September.
If the information above is not provided when submitted, upon notification of a work’s acceptance for performance, the composer must supply all pertinent performance materials including a full score and individual parts, a concise one-paragraph bio of the composer, and a concise one-paragraph program note about the work. Failure to supply these materials in a timely manner will result in the composition not being presented during the festival.
