New York Composers Circle

Deadline for Submissions: August 25, 2018
Deadline for Scores: TBD
Event Date: TBD
Event Venue: New York Composers Circle
Instruments: See details below

BAMA is planning an exchange program with the New York Composers Circle, to be implemented this year with two compositions from each organization.

BAMA members with current membership may submit one piece to be considered for performance during the NYCC 2018-2019 season. Of necessity, the deadline is short. By Saturday, August 25th, provide title, instrumentation, and precise duration. Links to score and recording are also accepted but not required at this time.

How to submit: Email to with subject “[your last name] – NYCC Call”

See instrumentation and concert info below from the NYCC program director. BAMA will likely select works for fixed media, solos, and/or small groups for the festival — thus similar forces are recommended for your submission.


Here is an idea of our forces across the coming regular-concert season. I’ll fill in solid info where presently known. The dates should hold.

  • 11/13 – (Mixed, piano. Electronics possible.)
  • 1/15 – (String quartet and divisions, hand percussion)
  • 3/19 – (Mixed, piano. Electronics possible.)
  • 4/23 – (Wind quintet and divisions, plus one extra oboe (English horn may be possible here).)
  • 5/21 – (Mixed, piano. Electronics possible.)

Where I say “mixed,” these concerts between them would use the following instruments (impossible at this point to say which one to which dates):
fl, corA (ob), cl (b cl), bsn (possibly), vn (2 possibly), vla, vc, db, mezzo-sop. This in addition to piano and electronics.
