March 15 - April 30, 2018 - 2nd Annual Call for Scores. Bay Colony Brass is pleased to announce its 2nd Annual Call for Scores. Bay Colony Brass (BCB) is one of the few large brass ensembles (or brass choirs) of its kind in the United States. Composed of twenty players, the group performs a broad range of repertoire spanning five centuries of brass and orchestral music. Bay Colony Brass is a volunteer organization and registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit in Massachusetts. Composers of any age and nationality are invited to submit. Submissions will be accepted for BCB’s full ensemble or any subset thereof, though preference will be given to submissions using all or most of the full ensemble. Works will be judged on a number of criteria, including play testing, and the winner(s) will be performed in the 2018-19 season. For our 2nd Call for Scores, submissions will be divided into two categories: composers may submit any work for brass that fits our instrumentation, but also we are encouraging submissions which fit our collaborative partner for the 2018-19 season, the Merrimack Valley Ringers. Works for brass and handbells will be given special consideration. Full details are available at https://www.baycolonybrass.org/call-for-scores/.
