The Spectrum Project is a new and exciting collaboration between Boston Conservatory at Berklee and Berklee College of Music. This student ensemble, led by Larry Isaacson (Music division, Boston Conservatory at Berklee), is seeking orchestral works written by faculty composers to be performed during the 2018-2019 academic year, with a recording of the performance being shared with the composer(s).

Pieces should be written for 10 and 50 players, be 5-80 minutes in length and use any combination of the following orchestral instrumentation: 2222.4331 Timp+5, harp, piano, strings (10.8.6.4.2). If the project requires players from the College, then they would be in addition to these forces and the composer would need to assist in procuring those players.

To submit pieces for consideration, please complete the form below by February 1, 2018. As a part of the application, you'll need to supply a pdf of the score, an artist statement and a recording (when available). A joint College/Conservatory committee will review the submissions in early March, and announce the selected pieces by March 15.
