Call for Scores SUBMISSION Deadline Extension

NOW OPEN UNTIL SEPTEMBER 13th

Who can believe that 2019 is already past the halfway point? While we shift into late summer (and maybe dust off those old New Years’ resolutions?), it bears remembering that the year is far from over. There is still plenty of time to start doing things to make this the best year yet—starting a gym routine or traveling somewhere new, or maybe releasing that musical idea, score, or recording that you’ve been dreaming of bringing to life. If you’ve had the latter on your mind, the Summer 2019 Call for Scores can help. In addition to being recorded, selected submissions will be considered for live performance. Previously accepted scores have been performed in Russia, Croatia, Austria, the Czech Republic, the United States, and more.

 

We are currently accepting submissions for:

 

Works for Orchestra (with or without soloists) - Glasgow, Scotland

 

Works for Chamber Ensemble or Chamber Opera - Athens, Greece

 

Live Recordings of Orchestral Works

 

 

GUIDELINES

 

Please submit PDF scores and audio examples via our Project Submission form.

 

Selected scores will be recorded and commercially released by PARMA Recordings; selected live recordings will be mastered and commercially released by PARMA Recordings. The submitter is responsible for securing funds associated with the production and release and retains all ownership of the master and underlying composition.

 

Works should ideally be between 5 and 15 minutes in length, but pieces outside of that range will still be considered.

 

Deadline for all submissions is September 13, 2019. There is no fee to submit.

 

You will receive a confirmation of receipt for submissions. We will work with the performers and our Sessions, Audio, and A&R Teams to select pieces that could fit these open projects. Should your music be selected, we will reach out to you with more information on pricing, scheduling, and other details.

Throughout its history, the Orchestra has played an integral part in Scotland’s musical life, including performing at the opening ceremony of the Scottish Parliament building in 2004. Many renowned conductors have contributed to its success, including George Szell, Sir John Barbirolli, Walter Susskind, Sir Alexander Gibson, Neeme Järvi, Walter Weller, Alexander Lazarev, and Stéphane Denève.

 

The RSNO performs across Scotland, including concerts in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Dundee, Aberdeen, Perth, and Inverness. The Orchestra appears regularly at the Edinburgh International Festival, the BBC Proms at London’s Royal Albert Hall, and the St Magnus Festival, Orkney, and has made recent tours to the United States of America, Spain, France, China, and Germany. The RSNO has a worldwide reputation for the quality of its over 200 releases, receiving two Diapason d’Or de l’année awards for Symphonic Music, and eight GRAMMY Award nominations.

WE LOOK FORWARD TO RECEIVING YOUR SCORE!

Who can believe that 2019 is already past the halfway point? While we shift into late summer (and maybe dust off those old New Years’ resolutions?), it bears remembering that the year is far from over. There is still plenty of time to start doing things to make this the best year yet—starting a gym routine or traveling somewhere new, or maybe releasing that musical idea, score, or recording that you’ve been dreaming of bringing to life. If you’ve had the latter on your mind, the Summer 2019 Call for Scores can help. In addition to being recorded, selected submissions will be considered for live performance. Previously accepted scores have been performed in Russia, Croatia, Austria, the Czech Republic, the United States, and more.

 

As a current PARMA composer, you receive the opportunity to be among the first to submit to this Call. Having worked with you and your music in the past, we know the caliber of your compositions, and we want to bring your music to life.

 

We are currently accepting submissions for:

 

Works for Orchestra (with or without soloists) - Glasgow, Scotland

 

Works for Chamber Ensemble or Chamber Opera - Athens, Greece

 

Live Recordings of Orchestral Works

 

 

GUIDELINES

 

Please submit PDF scores and audio examples via our Project Submission form.

 

Selected scores will be recorded and commercially released by PARMA Recordings; selected live recordings will be mastered and commercially released by PARMA Recordings. The submitter is responsible for securing funds associated with the production and release and retains all ownership of the master and underlying composition.

 

Works should ideally be between 5 and 15 minutes in length, but pieces outside of that range will still be considered.

 

Deadline for all submissions is September 13, 2019. There is no fee to submit.

 

You will receive a confirmation of receipt for submissions. We will work with the performers and our Sessions, Audio, and A&R Teams to select pieces that could fit these open projects.
