APNM Announces Composition Concert Winners
The Association for the Promotion of New Music (APNM) holds an annual Composition Call for Scores Contest seeking public submissions from APNM members and composers around the world. Winners are rewarded with performance and membership. During the 2013-14 Call, APNM received 135 submissions. The adjudicating panel (Hayes Biggs, Eleanor Cory, Mario Davidovsky, Erik Lundborg, Idith Meshulam, and Kristin Norderval) selected 15 works to be programmed on two concerts. On November 15, 2013 the winners were announced. The winning works are programmed on two concerts, the first of which is taking place on May 23, 2014 at the Tenri Cultural Institute and the second of which is to take place during the fall of the 2014-15 concert season.
The Association for the Promotion of New Music (APNM) is a community of American composers with the purpose of sharing common musical values and creating a network of professional support. APNM fosters the compositional creativity of its members by offering performances of their music, publication services (through Subito Music Corp.), and promotional visibility. The composers collective was founded in 1975 by composer and conductor Jacques-Louis Monod as part of the Guild of Composers, a publishing and concert producing organization. After a number of years when APNM acted primarily as a publisher, the organization resumed concert activities in 2009 to promote the music of our members and to bring visibility to a younger group of composers who reflect new approaches to music composition. Between 2009 and 2013, APNM gave two concerts per season, performed by ensembles including Ensemble Pi, the Argento Chamber Ensemble, and David Fulmer’s Second Instrumental Unit as well as a concert honoring Mario Davidovsky’s 80th birthday. Concert programming is the result of open Call for Scores competitions adjudicated by a panel of Board members and leaders of our collaborating ensembles, resulting in concerts of music shared by members and non-members. The winners of the competition receive automatic membership in APNM and a complimentary year of dues.
