We are Skyline Bones, a trombone trio based in NYC, dedicated to expanding the repertoire for our instruments and providing excellent music for our audiences. Over the years, we’ve explored a great deal of music for trombone trio together, but we’re looking for more! That’s where you come in!

Skyline Bones is accepting applications from composers of any age or nationality for our New Music Workshop which will take place August 24-25 and August 31st in NYC. Selected applicants will have their original composition or arrangement for trombone trio rehearsed and performed as part of a recital at Scholes Street Studio Brooklyn, NYC. The rehearsals will be live-streamed for the composer and the performance will be video/audio recorded. In addition, each member of Skyline Bones will give a live-streamed lecture on different aspects of trombone composition. Of course, we hope that you’ll be able to join us in-person but we want this opportunity to be open to those who are unable to travel as well!

We are excited to check out any of your pieces that might be suitable for us to perform but here are some general guidelines:

Duration: 3-8 minutes preferred, individual movements of longer works will be considered

Instrumentation: 1 bass trombone, 2 tenor trombones. Doublings involving bass trombone, tenor trombone, alto trombone, euphonium and tuba will be considered.

Works involving electronics will be considered but please give a detailed description of the necessary equipment and setup.

Tuition: $300 USD

No Application fee

Deadline for submission: July 1st 2024
