European Composer and Songwriter Alliance (ECSA) > Call for works (2019)

The European Composer and Songwriter Alliance (ECSA) is pleased to launch a call for works to be considered for its eleventh European Contemporary Composers Orchestra (ECCO) Concert which will be performed during the ECSA General Assembly in Brussels.

ECCO is an initiative of the contemporary music committee of ECSA (known as the ECF committee). It aims to establish a Europe-wide network dedicated to the performance, distribution and promotion of contemporary art music. It operates as a network of active ensembles, orchestras and young professionals, supporting creative dialogue between composers and performers and offering young professionals the opportunity to develop their skills on international level with ensembles experienced in contemporary music.

ECSA is pleased to announce that the ECCO concert will be performed by the Hopper ensemble and Centre Henri Pousseur. The concert will take place on 19 February 2019 in Espace Senghor.

Submissions from both individuals and publishers are welcome as long as they are made via member societies. ECSA would like to encourage member societies to take gender balance into consideration for the selection. Each national submission must include compositions of composers of both sexes.

If successful, composers’ societies who will have presented the selected pieces will be expected to cover the costs of hire of material/parts. Composers’ societies are kindly asked to indicate if they plan to finance the travel of the composer to the ECCO concert.

Deadline: 5 November 2018
