BNMI Announces Third Annual Commissioning Competition
The Boston New Music Initiative announces its third annual commissioning competition, which will close on October 15, 2014. The competition is open to both chamber (7 performers or less) and larger ensemble (up to 20 performers) works, with possible addition of voices (solo or small ensemble), electronics, or video. All composers (excluding current or former members of The Boston New Music Initiative's staff, or past BNMI Commission Competition winners) are eligible to apply with no restrictions.
The winner of the competition will be awarded a grand prize of at least $1,000 USD, in addition to being engaged to compose a new 8-12 minute work for performance by The Boston New Music Initiative in a future concert season. Pending available budget, the organization may award up to three (3) additional winners from this competition to compose new works for performance by BNMI or select works for Honorable Mention to be performed on a future concert. At least one winner will be named for this competition, and the winner will be strongly encouraged to attend the premiere performance.
Submissions will undergo a two-step blind review process consisting of a judging panel comprised of BNMI's core musicians and members of its staff, with the final round and winner(s) determined by an independent panel of industry experts.
