Call for Scores – Khemia Ensemble

Application deadline: August 15th, 2018

Khemia Ensemble’s is announcing their first ever Call for Scores. Our 2018-19 season will have the theme of Identity and in keeping with this theme we are holding our first Call for Scores in order to showcase the voices of the composition community. We will select 1-3 works to be performed at least once during our 2018-19 season. We are especially interested in works that engage with the season theme in some way. The entire application process is easy, electronic and free.

Formed in 2015, Khemia Ensemble is a contemporary chamber ensemble focused on championing the works of living composers through vivid, multimedia performances. The ensemble is quickly gaining a reputation as one to watch with recent performances at National Sawdust, Strange Beautiful Music X, New Music Gathering and MoxSonic. Khemia has held residencies at Avaloch Farms (2016, 2017), University of Missouri, Tufts University, the University of Michigan, Michigan State University and Universidad de Nacional de Cordaboa and has received grants from the Foundation of Contemporary Arts, the University of Michigan EXCEL Program and the Paul R.
