CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: ACWC 40th Anniversary Playlists

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: ACWC 40th Anniversary Playlists

Deadline: November 15th, 2020

Submission link:  https://forms.gle/rD7U1F74JA6ksVwWA

As part of the ACWC’s 40th anniversary celebrations, we will be releasing monthly playlists of music by Canadian women. The playlists will each be one to two hours long. They will be released January through December, 2021, hosted on Soundcloud, and embedded on the front page of the ACWC’s website. We are hoping to include at least one work by every current ACWC member, and if there is room for more, we will also include music by earlier Canadian women composers.

Please submit at least one work using the attached google form. There are twelve categories which are meant to be open-ended; select the one that is most applicable. If your submission does not fit any of the twelve categories, select “other”. You may submit up to two additional works; these will be included if space is available. They will be more likely to be included if you submit works in separate categories. The twelve submission categories may not reflect the themes of the twelve playlists; these will be reworked based on the submissions that are received.

There is no maximum length for recordings; however, works longer than 10 minutes may be excerpted. You may include preferences for how the piece should be excerpted in the “work details” section.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Amanda at amanda.lowry@gmail.com.
