Call for Compositions

Concrete Timbre is a composers collective providing ongoing opportunities for composers to initiate, create, and perform challenging new interdisciplinary compositions that are inspired by a wide range of contemporary social issues. Composers are able to hear their work played by excellent musicians in front of audience in an intimate space.

For each salon, we have chosen themes to provide an impulse for composers to devise a composition with an educational objective (create awareness and knowledge) and a motivational objective (effect attitude and/or behavior change) based on their creation.

There is no fee to submit your compositions.
