Verdant Vibes Call for Scores / Proposals submissions due 8.1.16
Verdant Vibes is seeking recently composed scores to perform on its second concert season beginning Fall 2016. Concerts will take place at Aurora in downtown Providence, featuring the Verdant Vibes Ensemble along with special guest performers from the local and regional experimental, electronic, and new music scenes. We will also perform on the Times Two series in Boston ( We remain dedicated to presenting music from Rhode Island-based/native composers, but are also opening the field to composers from anywhere in the world to participate this season.

Pieces may be up to 15 minutes in duration, scored for one or more performers drawn from the following instruments: clarinet/bass clarinet (1 player), violin, viola, cello, double bass, percussion, piano, and electric guitar, electronics, and/or multimedia. The addition of one or two other instruments/voices may be possible; please contact with specific questions.

Composers may submit up to three works via links to scores in PDF format and streaming recordings (MIDI ok, please make sure link does not expire before September 1). Please do not send submission materials via email.

If you would instead like to propose a collaboration, please upload various work samples and tell us about your ideas in the “proposals” field below. (Artists other than musicians are encouraged to reach out, too!)

Composers will be notified of results by September 15. Parts (printed or PDF) for selected works must be received by October 1, 2016. All works will be given equal consideration, regardless of the age, race, gender identity, sexual orientation, or nationality of the composer. Verdant Vibes strives to present a diverse spectrum of voices.

We welcome questions via email:
