As the year winds down, it’s time to start making preparations for a fruitful, performance-filled 2020. PARMA Recordings is dedicated to bringing new music to new performers, and then spreading that music to listeners all across the globe. As our composers continue creating beautiful, innovative new music, we wanted to reach out to you, the performers of that music, with some special opportunities to bring it to life.

 

PARMA Recordings is currently seeking ensembles to participate in a variety of performance and recording opportunities, including promotional tours in China, new releases, and more.

1. PARMA CHINA CONCERT TOUR SERIES

 

The PARMA China Concert Tour Series is a paid multi-city promotional tour for artists looking to expand their global presence.

 

We sent numerous ensembles on tour in 2018 and are in the midst of a highly successful 2019 season. Discover experiences from past tours here:

Ensembles should ideally be 2 to 4 players who perform standard repertoire or well-known music as part of their programs; however, performers or groups outside of this description will still be considered.

 

If your ensemble is interested, please submit your biography, website, potential repertoire, any video links, and at least 3 professional photos of your ensemble via our Submission form.

 

PARMA will carefully review all materials submitted. If your ensemble is selected, you can expect to hear from PARMA in early 2020 for next steps.

 

The deadline to submit for this opportunity is November 15 (11/15).
