San Francisco, California, United States

The San Francisco ARTZenter Institute is offering the Emerging Composer Completion Grants for young composers currently enrolled in a music composition program. These grants support the creation of new works for chamber orchestra and include a $3,000 completion grant, accommodations in San Francisco, and a $600 travel allowance. Winning composers will participate in a 3-day open rehearsal workshop and have their works recorded. Three composers will receive an additional $3,000 grant and funding for a 5-day residency, leading to a premiere performance. Applicants must submit a portion of their work-in-progress, a completed composition, and a description of their artistic vision. The panel seeks works that highlight the instrumentation of the chamber orchestra, engage the audience emotionally, and do not rely heavily on extended techniques. Percussion instruments are limited, and composers must be available for the scheduled events. The deadline is April 1, 2024.
