Reading Session: time TBA (mid-afternoon)

The ensemble this year will be a string quartet comprised of CMCB faculty. Composers are asked to submit scores in time that they arrive by December 30, 2017, and participants will be notified of inclusion soon thereafter. Parts need to be immediately available, or they may be submitted in the initial round. We expect that if a composer’s piece is read, that person will attend the event in person.

Submissions via pdf (score and extracted parts) are preferred. Questions and submissions should be directed to John Morrison (
