Dear composers,

It was truly a pleasure to have a chance to listen to all of your wonderful works, and we appreciate your patience during our judging process. This year we received 737 submissions by 602 composers from 51 countries. We have listed the pieces that we have chosen for mise-en music festival 2015 below.

One of the primary reasons that we put on this festival is that we want to share as many works by living composers as possible; in this process, we also want to create more opportunities for composers and musicians to work together to create meaningful experiences. However, we are unfortunately limited by time and space and thus cannot program as many works as we’d like to. Thus, we have selected 3 additional pieces that we will program this spring as part of our newly created Acoustic+ series, and 8 composers to write a new piece for us.

We hope to see you at mise-en music festival 2015 as well as at our season concerts, and please keep in touch! We plan to have a call for scores for mise-en music festival 2016 in July 2015. Thank you very much for your music and a special thanks to all our volunteer call-for-scores judges.
