2018 BGSU Graduate Conference in Music
Moore Musical Arts Center, Bowling Green, OH
February 9-10, 2018
Our call for works extends to all current graduate students (master’s and doctoral) from any institution. Senior undergraduates with exceptional standing are welcome to submit with the guidance of a faculty member.
IMPORTANT: If you are a current BGSU student, any scores you submit must be anonymous and should not include any information that could personally identify the composer. If any personal information (composer name, bio, logo, etc.) is found on the score, the composer will be disqualified.
Applicants may submit up to two works for consideration. Each work should be no longer than twelve minutes. The instrumentation is open to solo and chamber works of any instrumental/vocal combination and works involving electronics (up to four channels).
Each work may fit into one category:
A) Works for any instrumentation for which the composer can provide ALL of the required performers
B) Works for 1-5 performers for which the composer cannot provide ALL of the required number of performers
• Works involving flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, horn, tuba, violin, viola, cello, double bass, piano, percussion and soprano are more likely to be programmed in category B.
C) Works involving electronics may use up to 4 channels.
• Works submitted in categories A and B may also involve electronics (fixed media and/or interactive). Works involving video are also permitted.
The deadline for submissions is Friday, December 1, 2017. All applicants will be notified of their status by Friday, December 15, 2017. The composer’s attendance at the conference, dress rehearsal, and paper presentations is required. Do not submit if you cannot attend the conference.
