Orlando Contemporary Chamber Orchestra Call for Scores
March 1, 2024
Orlando Contemporary Chamber Orchestra (OCCO) is seeking composers of all ages and nationalities to submit their compositions for consideration. Composers can submit up to three scores, with durations between 3-15 minutes. The orchestra is looking for compositions for three different concerts, each with specific instrumentation and requirements. The June 1 concert, titled 'Heroes and Villains,' will only feature instrumental compositions that relate to themes found in comics and fantasy. The July 27 concert, 'From the Ashes,' will feature both the OCCO orchestra and VoxO chamber chorus. Composers can submit pieces for chorus with instrumental accompaniment. The September 7 concert, 'Celestial Light,' will exclusively feature VoxO. Composers can submit a cappella chorus or chorus with piano compositions. Selected composers do not need to travel to attend the concerts, and there is no funding available for travel.
