ymphony Number One is pleased to announce its Fourth International Call For Scores competition for performances to take place during SNO’s 2018-2019 Season. Winners receive a cash prize and a commission to complete a significant new work for chamber orchestra.

Symphony Number One vigorously promotes the composition and performance of contemporary music. They encourage compositions scored for the same or similar instrumentation as well-established masterworks of the past 500 years. In this way, further performances of new works become more practical and economical to program. Through its latest Call for Scores, selected composers will be invited to write a new work for chamber orchestra and chamber ensemble to be rehearsed, performed, and recorded during the 2018-2019 season.

From the submitted scores, two winners will be selected to compose an extended work for chamber orchestra. The two works will be programmed across two concert cycles of Symphony Number One’s 2018-2019 season. The music for SNO’s upcoming 2017-2018, VOICES, features music by emerging composers, several of whom were the winners of last year’s Call for Scores.
