Fifth Anniversary Concert
Celebrating half a decade of new music organizing in the Hudson Valley
August 24, 2019 | Millbrook, NY
September 2019 | College of St. Rose, Albany, NY
Call for scores: One Quiet Plunge is seeking scores for its Fifth Anniversary Concert, celebrating half a decade of new music organizing in the Hudson Valley. We are seeking vocal music by composers living or studying in the Hudson Valley, to be performed in Poughkeepsie, NY and at the College of St. Rose in August-September 2019, on a program featuring soprano Suna Avci Gunther and Thomas Gunther.
We seek pieces of 5-10 minutes for solo voice and limited instrumental accompaniment (2-3 players). Pieces set for soprano or baritone voice and piano will be performed by musicians provided by One Quiet Plunge; pieces calling for other voice types and instruments are eligible for selection, but the composer must be able to provide the performers. Pieces with a limited electronics component are eligible as well. There is no fee to submit.
Pieces that approach some aspect of life or experience in the Hudson Valley are of particular interest, but works in any aesthetic will receive consideration. Questions and submissions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Submission should include a score and recording (if available) and should be sent by June 1, 2019. Larger files may be sent via a file service such as WeTransfer or Dropbox. Composers whose works are selected will be notified by July 1, 2019; selected composers should be able to attend the performance. The performance will be recorded.
