12 April 2020 is the deadline for submitting a score and parts in pdf for performance in 2020 at the concert dedicated to Australian compositions. However, submissions are welcome at anytime.
In regard to the COVID-19 pandemic, we intend to proceed with the same deadline of 12 April 2020 as the processing of the submissions needs to be completed should we want to the opportunity to start rehearsals on the successful works in July for the concert in September.
The Grainger Wind Symphony is calling for Australian composers to submit an original composition for the Grainger Wind Symphony to perform. The Grainger Wind Symphony has provided this special opportunity for a number of years.
The composer gains feedback from the conductor and players based on the printed score and parts, and a chance to review audio recordings of rehearsals to better understand the process in preparing performances. Composers are invited to come to rehearsals or make contact via apps such as FaceTime, participate in the Pre-Concert Talk immediately prior to the concert and maybe introduce their work in the concert. At the end of the project, composers will receive a quality audio recording of their work.
