The Five College Contemporary Composition Collective [FC4] is currently accepting scores for its spring concert in mid-April. This edition of our concert series will be oriented around the current climate crisis. We strongly encourage composers to submit pieces related to this issue. Some suggestions include:

- What did the earth sound like before the global climate crisis, and what does it sound like now?

- How can music help us better understand and address the effects of this crisis, their urgency, and call us to action?

- How might we join in collective action to revert this crisis and disarm the mechanisms that enabled it?


Entry Guidelines:

Submissions should not exceed 7 minutes.

All instrumentations accepted.

Works including electronics or mixed media are permitted.

FC4 can provide performers for the following instruments:

String Quartet





4 Speaker Sound System

Any other instruments/combinations must be provided by the composer.

Please send all submissions to along with a brief introduction of yourself, your work, and your vision for this performance of your piece.

Submission deadline: Friday, February 28
