RED NOTE New Music Festival Call for Scores: New Works for Wind Ensemble
The Call for Wind Ensemble Scores has now concluded. We received 215 submissions from around the world, and a significant number of them were strong and compelling compositions. However, due to programming considerations we could only choose one work.
The winner of the Call for Scores is "Rochambeau" by Marcus Maroney of Houston, Texas. Dr. Maroney's work will be performed by the Illinois State University Wind Symphony, conducted by Dr. Stephen K. Steele, on the first concert of the RED NOTE New Music Festival on March 3rd, 2013.
"Daydreams," by Takuma Itoh (Honolulu, HI), was named Runner-Up.
Several Honorable Mentions were cited as well:
"Coronary Dance of the Destructive Sense", by Eric Lindsay (Bloomington, IN)
"Las Vegas Raga Machine", by Alejandro Rutty (Greensboro, NC)
"Too Close to the Sun", by Murray Gross (Alma, MI)
"What We Do Is Secret", by Lansing McLoskey (Miami, FL)
Preliminary judging was conducted by the Music Composition faculty at Illinois State University. Dr. Stephen Steele, Director of Bands at ISU, adjudicated the final round.
