Region VII Conference

University of Hawaii

March 11-13, 1999
Donald Reid Womack, host
submission deadline: September 1, 1998 (postmark)

Composers are invited to submit up to 2 works for solo instruments, instruments with tape, chamber ensembles, symphonic band, or orchestra. Available instruments for chamber works include all standard band and orchestral instruments (excluding harp), piano, saxophone, guitar, and soprano voice. Many non-Western instruments are also available, though composers should contact the host to confirm availability before submitting scores. Composers may also submit papers on subjects dealing with any aspect of composition. Works involving non-Western instruments, or otherwise displaying non-Western influences are especially welcome. Composers are encouraged to provide their own performers. Works may be of any duration, but in order to program as many composers as possible, preference will be given to works of less than 10 minutes. Preference will also be given to members of Region VII. Composers performed at the conference must attend and must be (or become) members of SCI. Submissions must include score, with CD or cassette if available, a brief biography (including SCI regional affiliation), and brief program notes for each piece submitted. Composers should also indicate if they will provide their own performers. Materials must be postmarked no later than September 1, 1998. Selected composers will be notified by December 1, 1998. Materials will be returned only if a SASE is included.
