The Nouveau Classical Project is an ensemble rooted in collaboration. In addition to being a group of experienced, passionate musicians, we also work closely with composers to produce projects and realize them from start to finish. We are also open to working with artists of any discipline to produce innovative projects that encourage audiences to experience new music.
Here are ways you can collaborate with us:
Composers and artists wishing to propose a specific project for collaboration: We are primarily seeking applications from composers, but we are also open to working with emerging and established artists of any discipline. We are currently programming our Spring 2018 and 2018-19 season. We suggest you see a live performance to become familiar with the type of work we are interested in. If that is not possible, please review our past projects (which can be found in the menu above in the "Projects" tab). Please DO NOT submit projects that are to take place before 2018.
Please note that NCP is not a grant making organization; the operative word here is collaboration. If your project is selected, we will collaborate with you on fundraising, creation, and execution. This type of support is extremely valuable, as administrative costs will be covered.
- Students are not eligible, however, PhD candidates are welcome to submit a proposal.
- Open to artists aged 25 years or older
- Music must be scored for our ensemble. Our ensemble is flute, clarinet/bass clarinet, violin, cello, and piano. Voice is optional.
- Premieres will be given priority, but previously performed works are eligible
