I recently renewed my membership in the American Composers Forum and immediately began looking over the Opportunities available to members.
So far today, I have submitted the following:
- Fresh Squeezed Opera Company: They were looking for new arias, etc., so I submitted “My mother, bored and pampered,” promising to orchestrate it for their small ensemble if they select it.
- Denison University Tutti Festival: I submitted two works, the Pieces for Bassoon and String Quartet, and “Blakes Leads a Walk on the Milky Way.”
I’m also considering inquiring about the Sacramento State University’s odd little posting about premiering works and students studying the history of such premieres. I mean, why not? Who says I can’t whack out a new piece for chorus and small ensemble by “early November”?
I’ll keep you posted about further submissions as I continue to explore the Opportunities.
