2018 Mizzou International Composers Festival: Call for Scores

The Mizzou New Music Initiative is now accepting applications for eight resident composers to take part in the 2018 Mizzou International Composers Festival (MICF), which will be held July 23- 28, 2018 on the campus of the University of Missouri in Columbia.

Alex Mincek and a to-be-announced composer will serve as the distinguished guest composers for the 2018 MICF, which will include three public concerts of contemporary music as well as workshops, master classes and other events.

As in years past, Saturday night’s grand finale at the Missouri Theatre will feature the world premieres of new works from each of the eight resident composers, with the acclaimed new music group Alarm Will Sound, conducted by artistic director Alan Pierson, serving as resident ensemble.

The resident composers are selected for the MICF each year through an online portfolio application process. During the Festival, they’ll get composition lessons from the distinguished guest composers and University of Missouri faculty, and take part in rehearsals with Alarm Will Sound. Each composer also will receive a professional live recording of their work.
