The Centre for New Zealand Music is now welcoming proposals from New Zealand composers and/or community groups for the 2010 SOUNZ Community Commission.
The SOUNZ Community Commission aims to bring together professional composers and community groups to create and perform a new work. It has been supported since 1998 by an overseas donor who prefers to remain anonymous. Click here to find out more about the commission and click here to see a list of previous recipients.
The proposed commission should be completed and a performance realised or scheduled by March 31, 2011. While works can be of any form, the donor has previously expressed an interest in those works which include improvisational processes and a choral/vocal element and perhaps a music-theatre slant. (These elements are not obligatory by any means!)
