Call for Composers
If you are a young (still at high school full time), or an emerging, student, amateur composer (18+) interested in writing a 5-min long piece for a duo, please send your name, school (if relevant), and contact email to admin[at]rednoteensemble.com by Friday 10 July (12:00PM – BST).
That same day, we will get back in touch to inform you about the instruments you have been assigned to write for from the options above – please note this will be a random allocation. You will also receive the link to a brief instrument demo filmed by each player outlining capabilities, techniques, notation, etc.
Then the challenge is on! You all have 2 weeks to write your piece for that specific duo. Please submit in pdf format by 5pm (BST) on Friday 24th July to admin[at]rednoteensemble.com. Please consider that concerts are rehearsed and performed in a short timeframe.
The 20 compositions selected by the players will be performed on our YouTube channel on 4 separate concerts: 7th, 14th, 21st, 28th August.
Please help us spread the word by sharing this call with your friends and contacts.
We are looking forward to keeping music alive and new music lovers connected online.
