Audition Requirements for Composers


The composer candidate shall submit three or more original works to auditions@fmmc.org for review by the Composers’ Committee at any time, as follows:

  • One composition shall be a work of at least 6 minutes’ duration in a medium of the composer’s choice. The composition may be a single extended movement or may comprise a group of shorter related pieces.
  • One of the other compositions shall be in a different medium, showing other aspects of the composer’s ability.
  • At least one of the compositions submitted shall have been written less than four years prior to the date of submission.

Compositions are to be submitted either in duplicate manuscripts or in published form. Performance tapes, if available, may accompany the manuscripts but are not required. All application material will be returned to the applicant. Judges will take every possible care of submitted material but will not be held responsible for possible damage or loss.
