Judging panels are currently reviewing submissions to BNMI's two calls for scores (closed on December 15, 2014 and March 15, 2015), its Commissioning competition (closed on October 15, 2014), and its Young Composers Competition (closed on June 15, 2015) from this past year.  Once the results are complete, BNMI's selection committee will determine the repertoire for its seventh concert season, which will run from Fall 2015 through Spring 2016.  The next open call for scores will open on September 1, 2015.  

We sincerely thank all the composers who have submitted their works to these competitions.  We aim to announce the results July 15, 2015.  If you do not hear from us by then, please contact us.
