In conjunction with the 2023 Strata New Music Festival held from June 1 – 4 2023, all interested composers are invited to submit original compositions for professional performance and discussion in a Student Masterclass, led by guest composer Carmen Braden.
The objective of the masterclass is to give Saskatchewan composers a chance to have their music played professionally, discussed, and critiqued by our guest composer, as well as having the opportunity to give them a chance to be exposed to other styles, ideas and repertoire. This is NOT a competition. Parents, teachers and friends are invited to attend.
Music should be notated with music notation software such as Finale or Sibelius. If the music is hand written, it must be legible.
For the sake of performability, we would prefer piano compositions or arrangements. Compositions for other instruments would still be accepted, but would not be able to be given a professional performance. Students would be welcome to bring along a recording or midi file.
Recommended duration no longer than 10 minutes.
Those that are interested please email your name, age, contact information, and a PDF of your piece to firstname.lastname@example.org by May 26th 2023
A maximum of 5 may participate and there is no fee.
