Call for Scores

Thank you to all who submitted your works to our inaugural Call for Scores in 2016. This was an incredible opportunity for us to get to know so many unique composers. Our goal is to help bridge composers and their music with wind quintets around the world.

We will be announcing a second call for scores for the summer of 2018 in June.
