Indiana University Composers:
The band department offers the opportunity to have works or excerpts of works-in-progress read by the band department. In addition to considering completed pieces, a session may be used to read partial works. If you have an interest in composing for wind ensemble (highly recommended), consider writing a short passage and orchestrating it multiple ways, or submit portions of a work, using this opportunity to better prepare for completing a work for band.
Instrumentation: standard wind ensemble (speak to your teacher). five percussionists, max. harp and piano are possible. contrabass is not provided (unless the composer recruits someone).
Recording: Composers should bring in their own recording devices.
Submission: Speak to your composition teacher about the current approach to this.
Eligibility: all composition majors, minors, and Outside Area students.
