MATA JR. 2021 Call for Submissions
Each selected composer will be paired with an emerging-composer mentor and asked to write a new work for the Bergamot String Quartet, to be completed during the summer of 2021. Lessons with mentors will take place remotely over the summer. Works will be rehearsed and performed in New York City, Fall 2021.
Composers who have applied previously but were not accepted are welcome to apply again. Former MATA Jr. participants must wait one year before reapplying. There is no fee to apply. Program participation for selected composers is free.
Scores: All scores (if applicable) must be in PDF format. We cannot open Finale, Sibelius or other notation files. Please name your file with your last name and the title of the work. (Ex: Mozart_EineKleineNachtmusik.pdf). If scores are not applicable to your work, please provide a short explanation (1 page maximum) of how the work was created.
Audio: mp3 format. We strongly encourage you to submit an audio realization of your work. MIDI is acceptable. Please name your file with your last name, followed by the title of the work. (Ex: Mozart_EineKleineNachtmusik.mp3)
If you have any questions about the submission process, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org Results will be announced in Summer 2021, with final scores and parts due in Fall 2021.
