Continuum Contemporary Music: Mentorship in Artistic ProductionDeadline / October 3rd, 2022Click here for info

Continuum is seeking two passionate, imaginative, and collaborative early-career artists to join our team as Artistic Producers through the 22-23 and 23-24 Seasons as part of our inaugural Mentorship in Artistic Production (MAP) project.

The Artistic Producers will develop a concert program to be presented in Continuum’s 23-24 Season. The project will explore a collaborative approach to curation; over two seasons, the producers will learn about Continuum’s processes and engage in ongoing conversations informed by each artists’ interests, questions, and perspectives on the evolving practice of contemporary chamber music today. Through this exchange of ideas, the producers will work toward the shared goal of developing a co-curated program informed by each artists’ vision.

The selected applicants will each receive a fee of $2000 ($1000 per season), access to a concert budget, and ongoing support from Continuum’s Artistic Director and Operations Manager

Asyla Oboe Quartet: Call
Deadline / unspecified
Click here for info

I just came upon this posting from January, and I offer it cautiously given the lapsed time. The Asyla Oboe Quartet has issued a call for scores, with an interest in works between 5-15 minutes for any instrumental combination from their group. Their standard line up is oboe, oboe d’amore, cor Anglais (English horn) and bass oboe, however each player has access to an oboe and cor Anglais. They also seem open to collaboration with composers in developing new works. They have received a large number of submissions thus far, and have produced a series of videos demonstrating their instrumentation. Worth your time if their collaborative model and sound appeal to you.
