  • Submitting to the reading session is free, but signing up is required. From 3-4 PM, we’ll read composers who are members of the Center for New Music in order of sign-up, and from 4-5 PM, we’ll read all composers in order of sign-up.
  • We’ll spend approximately 10 minutes on each composer. You may bring pieces, excerpts, different versions of the same passage, etc. Anything goes!
  • Pieces requiring a conductor are welcome, but you must submit a score by 11/15.
  • You’re welcome to record the reading for non-commercial use, but we ask that you leave the recording unattributed.
  • If your piece/excerpt is ready to go, please e-mail score and parts ASAP to Jen Wang ( We can read pieces cold, but they’re more likely to sound good if you send us scores and parts by 11/15!
