Click Here For Our Guidelines

  1. Living Composers Fiesta is A Music/Performance Festival of everything that is current and exciting today: Compositions of living composers may include any or all of the following: multimedia, improvisation, experimentation, jazz, film music, recent compositions, concert music/art music. The music can be inspired by the classical tradition, pop, jazz, rock or any fusions thereof. Any and all instrumental and vocal combinations are encouraged. Students are encouraged to perform their own compo- sitions or pieces by their friends. Have an open mind—the sky is the limit, and it is time to play with sound and possibilities!

  2. REPERTOIRE POSSIBILITIES
    The music can be inspired from the classical tradition, pop, jazz, rock, or any fusions thereof. Any and all instrumental and vocal combinations are encouraged. Please NO compositions from composers of teaching material etc. (like method books or pseudo-classical type pieces from method books etc.) Otherwise, as long as the composer or group is living today, it should fit the concept of this festival.
    Students can also perform their own pieces, pieces by their friends or pieces by present day musicians or musical groups. Have an open mind – the sky is the limit and it is time to play with sound and possibilities!
    If your student composes his own pieces of music, and there is a written score, it (or a portion thereof) should be made available for the audience on the performance date.
    Perhaps your student has an idea of combining his instrument or instruments with a multi-media presentation or various forms of multi-track recording.
    Your student might also wish to do a ‘cover’ of another groups’ music. A transcription of a well-known work of a traditional classical composer is permitted ONLY if it forms the basis or inspiration for an original work. It should NOT be a simple transcribing of the work into pop-form.
    The fusion of different art forms is also a nice idea: Dance + music, theatre, + music, poetry + music, or rap as a musical form, hip-hop etc. Really anything is possible as long as it can be performed at the space at Roth Hall, Crossroads School. N.B. Any questions about acceptable performances or compositions can be directed to Neil Galanter: ngalanter@gmail.com or at 213-804-1009
