2013 Mizzou International Composers Festival
July 21 – 27, 2013
Receipt Deadline: November 1, 2012
The Mizzou New Music Initiative is excited to announce the Fourth Annual
Mizzou International Composers Festival (formerly Mizzou New Music Summer Festival), July 21 – 27, 2013 on the campus of the University of Missouri. Eight composers from around the world will be selected through a portfolio application process to compose a work to be performed by the internationally acclaimed new music ensemble, Alarm Will Sound. Composers will take part in discussions and masterclasses
with Augusta Read Thomas, Mead Composer-in-Residence with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra from 1997 through 2006 , and Daniel Kellogg, recipient of a Charles Ives Fellowship from the American Academy of Arts and Letters; take part in workshops
with Alarm Will Sound and receive a professional live recording of the premiere performance of their work.
Applicants selected as resident composers for the festival will be expected to compose a work for Alarm Will Sound’s complete instrumentation lasting up to 8 minutes in duration. Each selected resident composer must submit professionally prepared scores (2) and parts of their work by May 1, 2013. Due to rehearsal/technical
demands we will not be able to program works that include electronics.
Festival tuition, room, and board for each selected composer will be provided through the generous contributions of the Sinquefield Charitable Foundation. Selected composers will need to pay for transportation to and from Columbia, MO.
