The Utrecht Wind Ensemble ("Utrechts Blazers Ensemble") issues a Call for Scores. The UBE focuses on playing modern classical music and therefore finds itself in a unique place among Dutch student ensembles. Even though this niche is not always appreciated by the large public, the members are not afraid to choose for challenging and original programmes. The UBE considers it important that new music has a place in Dutch (and student) musical culture. With this Call for Scores we would like to gain access to a new musical reservoir and play works of the next generation of composers.
Composers are invited to submit works for wind ensemble (with or without piano). Selected pieces will be performed by the UBE during two concerts in January 2011. Submission deadline: 1st of June, 2010.
