Having received submissions from BIPOC female-identifying composers at various career stages from across the United States and abroad, we are pleased to announce the results of our 2021 Call for Compositions.

This project is funded for three consecutive years. We will re-open our application for 2022-2023 in late spring, 2022, with information and guidelines published here at that time.

Selected Composer:

Brittany J. Green

Brittany J. Green is a North Carolina-based composer, creative, and educator. Described as “cinematic in the best sense” and “searing” (Chicago Classical Review), Green’s music works to facilitate collaborative, intimate musical spaces that ignite visceral responses. The intersections between sound, video, movement, and text serves as the focal point of these musical spaces, questioning and redefining the relationships between these three elements. Her music has been featured at concerts and festivals throughout the United States and Canada, including TIME:SPANS, New York City Electroacoustic Music Festival, and Boulanger Initiative’s WoCo Fest. Her music has been commissioned and performed by the JACK Quartet, International Contemporary Ensemble, Mind on Fire, and Transient Canvas. Green’s music has been awarded the ASCAP Morton Gould Award and New Music USA Creator Development Grant. Green holds degrees from UNC-Pembroke and East Carolina University. She is a Deans Graduate Ph.D Fellow at Duke University.
