ECM Emerging Composer Festival | No deadline
About the Festival
Welcome to ECM's monthly emerging composer festival series. Each month we host a new ensemble-in-residence with high-profile and world-renowned performers. Composers are encouraged to apply with their submission portfolio (details below). Up to ten composers are selected each month, who will compose short pieces for the ensemble, under the direction of the composer-in-residence. We also hold a week-long hands-on workshop and lectures prior to the world premieres of composer pieces. See below for this month's performers and submission details. We encourage past applicants who were not selected to re-apply in the following months.
Accepted participants will be excpected to write a 3-4 minute piece for the ensemble, receiving a world premiere online release. Composers will also receive a video file of their final performance for their records, with a limited promotional use. This festival is intended to further the compositional and collaborative skills of emerging and early-career composers as well as to provide them with an opportunity to have their music reach audiences across the globe. At the festival, composers will have a chance to connect with world-renowned and high-profile musicians, opening up possibilities for future commissions and collaborations. Guest artist, Ronald Royer from the Scarborough Philharmonic Orchestra, will also give talks on career opportunities, working with an orchetsra and becoming composer-in-residence, receiving commissions and studio recordings and much more.

RIVERS: A Resource for Artists | No deadline
Preamble | A significant feature of CMC Ontario operations is our consulting with, and advising community members. Numerous artists approach our office for guidance and support related to a variety of topics: grant and sponsorship opportunities, designing programming, event coordination, community- and relationship-building, and more. These topics are likely relevant to you as well. Rivers is our initial effort to open up and formalize what has been a more casual, incidental, and conversational, yet persistent feature of our work.
