The Korvat Auki Ensemble is seeking compositions for its upcoming concert in late May.
Korvat Auki is delighted to announce a call for scores for our upcoming concert in late May. We are eager to showcase contemporary music from around Finland and invite our members to submit their compositions.
We particularly encourage female composers within our society to apply, as we aim to promote diversity and inclusivity within the contemporary music scene.
The Korvat Auki Ensemble will primarily perform the selected compositions. However, we are open to adding new instruments and performers to the ensemble if required by your piece.
Currently, the ensemble features nine talented musicians, including a vocalist, pianist, trumpeter, oboist, flautist, accordionist, amongst others. Composers are also encouraged to participate as performers within the ensemble.
We welcome submissions across all styles and genres, with a particular preference for open scores and graphic notation.
Please keep in mind that this call for scores is only open to members of our society. To learn more about Korvat Auki membership, please visit our membership page.

To apply, please email your score, along with an audio sample, as a PDF file to yekrangiariana[at]gmail.com no later than Tuesday, 2nd of May, at 18:00 EET. In your email, please provide your name, contact information and a brief bio or artistic statement.
If your piece requires specific instrumentation, please indicate this in your email as well. Please include “Korvat Auki Ensemble Call for Scores” in the email subject line.
At this time, the number of selected pieces is undetermined.
