Deadline: 15 May 2021


Music At The Anthology (MATA) seeks submissions from composers who have not yet graduated high school at the time of submission. We accept all music: sound art, video, electronic, found instruments, toys, installations, fully notated, improvised, and everything in between. A distinguished panel of MATA’s directors, composers, and performers will select six composers to participate in MATA Jr. 2021.

Each selected composer will be paired with an emerging-composer mentor and asked to write a new work for the Bergamot String Quartet, to be completed during the summer of 2021. Lessons with mentors will take place remotely over the summer. Works will be rehearsed and performed in New York City, Fall 2021.

Composers who have applied previously but were not accepted are welcome to apply again. Former MATA Jr. participants must wait one year before reapplying. There is no fee to apply. Program participation for selected composers is free.
