JAM’s Call for Music is now CLOSED.
Submit music for choir, brass quintet and organ, or any combination of these forces.
Anyone aged 18 or over may submit music to JAM if they are born, living or studying in the UK.
Successful submissions will be performed in JAM’s 2018 season launch concert at St Bride’s Church, Fleet Street, London on the 22nd March. The concert will be performed by The Chapel Choir of Selwyn College Cambridge, Onyx Brass and Simon Hogan (organ), conducted by Michael Bawtree. The submissions will be joined by JAM’s stunning commissions by Jonathan Dove’s The Far Theatricals of Day, celebrating fifteen years since its commission and Voices of Vimy by Tom Harrold and Stuart Beatch with words by Grahame Davies. This performance will be professionally recorded for you to use in publicising your work. Performances are attended by the general public and also publishers, commissioners, concert/festival managers and the media.
A maximum time limit of 10 minutes per piece is stipulated. There is no minimum limit – a short fanfare is just as relevant as a 10 minute piece for all the forces.
Please do not submit more than 3 pieces. Ideally send us just your best piece; the one you want us to see and perform.
All music submitted must be on paper, accompanied by a recording. The audio version does not have to be of great quality – a sequenced / Sibelius version is acceptable. The recording will only be used as a ‘reference’ during the selection process.
Music submitted to JAM does not have to be Church music; music set to any text is encouraged. Please remember to have the appropriate copyright for any words that are set. JAM will not be able to perform pieces that do not have this copyright.
Submissions should be anonymous, but please submit the music with a covering letter so that we can contact you! Please submit music to: 55 Kempshott Road, London SW16 5LJ.
JAM can not return music that is submitted. Always keep a copy!
