Commissioning Opportunity for New Saxophone Work

 Commissioning Opportunity for New Saxophone Work
Summary:Saxophone Call
Deadline: 16 August 2019
Date Posted: 31 July 2019
Details: My name is Becky Swanson, and I am a saxophonist who is interested in the creation and curation of new music! I am looking to commission a composer to write a brand new piece that includes the saxophone as part of an upcoming project entitled “Bright Voices.” The project will culminate in a recital in the spring of 2020 that is comprised entirely of new saxophone music.

This commission will be funded by a grant from Lawrence University in the amount of $700, and the piece will be premiered alongside others in a live concert in Appleton, WI in the spring of 2020 (specific date to be decided). The piece must include the saxophone (soprano, alto, tenor, and/or baritone), with other instrumentation being possible, and must be at least 10 minutes or more in length. The commissioned piece must be finished and delivered by January 31st, 2020.
