From the desk of Leslie La Barre (Marketing Coordinator) and David Davies (SCI 2019 Region VI Conference Coordinator)
The Society of Composers, Inc., Region VI (AR, KS, MO, NE, OK, TX) Conference will be held April 11-13 at Texas A&M University-Commerce in Commerce, TX. All composers are welcome to submit works for consideration, though preference in score selection will be given to SCI composers who are members of Region VI.
To join, go to www.societyofcomposers.org. Selected composers must join SCI and also attend the conference in order for their work to be performed. Submissions from student composers are strongly encouraged, as are submissions from composers who are able to supply their own performers.
Composers may submit up to 2 works for any of the listed performers/ensembles (with exceptions for those who are able to provide their own performers). Works should not exceed 20 minutes in length and selected movements of longer works are acceptable. All scores and recordings should be submitted through the New Music Engine site. MIDI recordings are acceptable if no live recording is available.
The deadline for submission is October 12, 2018. Composers whose work(s) will be performed at the conference will be notified via e-mail no later than December 19th. Interested composers are encouraged to submit their work as early as possible to accommodate conductors and performers looking to plan their repertoire for the semester.
Works for solo instrument (accompanied or solo) may be submitted for the following instruments: Any voice type, Piano, Flute, Clarinet, Oboe, Saxophone, Trumpet,
Horn, Trombone, Tuba, Euphonium
Works may be submitted for the following large ensembles: Wind Ensemble, SATB Choir, Jazz Band
Brass Quintet, Brass Quartet (Tpt, Hn, Tbn, Tba), Woodwind Trio (Fl, Cl, Sax), Saxophone Quartet, Trombone Choir, Clarinet Choir, Flute Choir, Brass Choir, Trumpet Choir
Solo and chamber works involving string instruments may be submitted. However, composers should take note that A&M-Commerce does not have a string program and composers are strongly encouraged to provide their own string players. Composers who cannot supply their own performers are still welcome to submit, as the Department of Music may secure supplemental string musicians for the conference.
Composers and presenters who are selected for this conference are required to remit a registration fee and must agree to attend the conference. The Society of Composers, Inc. is not able to offer travel stipends or honorariums to conference participants.
