The Tesla Quartet is pleased to announce its inaugural Call for Scores. Composers are encouraged to submit completed works for string quartet for consideration, with the winning quartet receiving two performances in the spring of 2017. Any composer is eligible regardless of age, nationality, sex, color, creed, sexual orientation, marital status, disability or veteran status. The composition must be written for string quartet (2 violins, viola, cello) and must have a duration between 5 and 20 minutes.
The selection will be made using a blind evaluation process. All submissions will go to a dedicated email address, firstname.lastname@example.org, which will be monitored by an assistant who will transfer all the anonymous scores to the members of Tesla Quartet for review. An anonymous call prevents against any bias while selecting the work. Our decision will be made purely on quality of the music and not personal connections we may have with composers.
The winning work will receive two performances in the spring of 2017:
April 1, 2017
Mount Allison University
Sackville, New Brunswick, Canada
April 8, 2017
Western Piedmont Symphony Chamber Classics
The composer of the winning work is strongly encouraged to travel to the performance and Tesla Quartet will gladly provide a travel stipend of $400 towards his/her travel expenses.
Application Deadline: All submissions must be sent and fees paid by 11:59 pm EST on December 1, 2016. Entries received after this date will not be considered.
