Call for Scores

S.E.M. Ensemble Readings - Workshop - Concert

of New Scores February 14 - 18, 2023


Emerging and young composers are encouraged to submit score(s)

for S.E.M. Ensemble's annual reading - workshop - concert.


Composers are expected to attend the workshop to work on their composition alongside the musicians. The workshop will conclude with a public performance at Willow Place Auditorium, 26 Willow Place, Brooklyn Heights. 


As much as we would like to consider compositions for larger ensembles, due to the budget restraints, we presently can only consider scores for ensembles of up to 7, 8 musicians. The use of electronics is possible. Selected scores will be read, rehearsed, critiqued, perhaps adjusted by composers themselves. Preference will be given to works that have not been performed and have no scheduled premiere.



Please email or mail:

1. One performance-ready copy of your score (recording not necessary)
2. A short statement about your music.

3. Short biography (include date of birth and the city / country you are based in)
4. $30 processing fee (cash, check payable to S.E.M. Ensemble, Inc., or PayPal [] is acceptable)

Materials should be sent, postmarked or hand-delivered NO LATER THAN FRIDAY, January 20, 2022.
