Happy Composer Commission Project

 Happy Composer Commission Project
Summary:Choir Composition Opportunity
Deadline: 06 May 2019
Date Posted: 11 April 2019
Details: Happy Composer Commission is an educational project to commission new choral pieces from composers in development.

Through Happy Composer, new composers will have the experience of creating a commissioned piece for choir with the guidance of composer Carlos Cordero.

I am very excited to receive your submission and the possibility of working together to create a new piece. Below, I have included again the rules for the call for Score:
The call for scores is open to composers of any nationality, gender, age, or stage in their career. Preference will be given to those who have not had any choral music published (excludes self published).

The Process

1. Online Call For Scores, allowing more composers to apply from any part of the world!
2. The conductor and I select the 3 composers most likely to write a piece suitable for the chapterís choir.
3. I work with the selected composers for 2 months. In the process, I share drafts with the conductor before finishing the pieces.
4. Upon delivery, the choir has 1 year to premiere the work in any combination (one per concert or the three in one concert!)

The call for scores is open to composers of any nationality, gender, age, or stage in their career. Preference will be given to those who have not had any choral music published (excludes self publish). Composer Carlos Cordero will help the selected composers to create a new piece for unaccompanied choir (2 to 4 minutes). Upon completion, each composer will be paid $50.

The best part: There is no application fee!
