Call for Scores: Jacob Elkin, trombone

Concert dates: TBD between February 15-24, 2025
Submission deadline: EXTENDED TO MAY 18, 2024
Venue(s): TBD
Instrumentation: Tenor or bass trombone, with or without electronics.

Trombonist Jacob Elkin has offered to present a concert featuring BAMA member composers in February of 2025. He is particularly interested in electronics, improvisation, and microtonality but will consider all submissions. Works for solo tenor or bass trombone (acoustic or electronic) are more likely to have repeat performances. Collaborative improvisations and pieces to be performed with local musicians are possible, provided the composer manages rehearsals and covers additional performer fees.

How to Submit:
By May 18, 2024, email with the subject “Elkin” and the following info:

  • Composer/collaborator
  • Working title
  • Duration
  • Instrumentation
  • Technical requirements
  • Optional recording or demo

If the work to be submitted is complete, attach the score in PDF format. Otherwise, include a proposal with a brief description of the composition/collaboration. A due date for proposed compositions will be announced later.
