CALL FOR COMPOSITIONS

 

An important component of The Paramount Chamber Players’ mission of providing creative opportunities is the commission of new musical compositions by regional composers through our “Call for Compositions” Program. When a “Call for Compositions” is announced, we ask the composers to submit chamber works reflecting a connection between the creative urge of the composer and the audience we serve in the Mountain Empire. The compositions most likely to win a performance musically address the intangible issues of sound and style that surround this challenge. As such, these new works provide The Paramount Chamber Players with the opportunity to educate the audience to issues composers address in their compositions while simultaneously providing a high level of entertainment and edification.

 

The Paramount Chamber Players have premiered a number of compositions written by composers of the Northeast Tennessee/Southwest Virginia region:
