Renegade Ensemble

 Renegade Ensemble
Summary:Competition, choice of 6 instruments
Deadline: 01 June 2018
Date Posted: 16 May 2018
Details: Now accepting submissions to our Call-for-Scores for the 2018-2019 Season

Selected scores will be performed during our regular concert season (either in the Fall 2018 or the Spring 2019). The selected composers are encouraged to attend the concerts in the Twin Cities, but are not required to.

Selected compositions will be presented at a minimum of 2 concerts during the 2018-2019 season and composers will receive a professional recording of both performances.

All submitted compositions must be for any combination of the following instruments ONLY (any additional instruments will automatically disqualify a submission *EXCEPT if the piece uses more than three of these instruments plus piano. Duos with piano are not accepted):

Saxophone (alto, soprano, tenor)

Pieces that incorporate fixed-media or electronics are welcome. We are especially interested in programming works written by women/femme, LGBTQ+ identified, gender non-conforming, or POC composers. Works incorporating more than 3 members of the Ensemble will also be more likely to be programmed than solo works (though solo works are accepted). Works that have been already performed or published are welcome!

Please email the following to
1. Name (including birth year)
2. Title of piece and date composed
3. Instrumentation
4. PDF or link to score
5. Link to audio recording

There is NO submission fee, though we do ask you to consider a $5 tax deductible donation to RenegadeEnsemble at (note that donating to the Ensemble does not guarantee performance of your composition).

Deadline: June 1st, 2018
