We are excited to announce a new consortium for THREE new pieces - not one, not two, but THREE - composed by Caleb Hammer, Josh Trentadue, and Harrison J. Collins! The three composers met each other through the formation of the Millennium Composers Initiative, becoming fast friends throughout the process. Now, they are joining forces in this consortium to bring to the forefront new music for the concert band medium. Here’s how you can participate in this exciting opportunity:
What it Costs: $90 to buy in
What You Get: Three brand new works for concert band, one from each composer.
-Trentadue: The Great River Rapid Chase (Grade 2.5)
-Hammer: Walking Through the Night (Grade 3.5)
-Collins: O rose of May (Grade 4)
Why we are doing this: We believe that every young performer in music ensembles should have the opportunity to be a part of the creation and performance of new music! Our buy-in price reflects this opportunity; although cheap in comparison to a typical consortium, we stress the idea of community and togetherness when it comes to programming and supporting new music, especially for music programs that often do not have the opportunity to participate in such endeavors.
Payment options: Check or card is accepted. A link to buy in to the consortium can be found here. Score and parts will be delivered via email in a PDF format (ZIP) by no later than September 1st, 2018, the date which the consortium will close. Payments should be mailed or paid online by December 1st 2018. Contact Caleb directly at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need to break up the payments in separate installments (2-3 payments) between now and December 1st.
Composer, cats, and food - in no particular order.
