Calling for 21st Century Music written by Women Composers

Calling for 21st Century Music written by Women Composers! In conjunction with this event, Marvin is calling for a submission of recordings with music written in the 21st century by women composers.
Submission deadline is March 15.
Only recordings on CD will be accepted.

The maximum length of each work submitted should be no more than 10 minutes.
All private recordings must have good sound quality and released for radio broadcast by the owner of the recording (a statement from submitting person is sufficient).

Marvin knows that in today’s time many music transactions are done via downloading etc. Since he has a full time job, as well as other volunteer duties, the recording submission process has to be done as conveniently for Marvin as possible.

Please contact Marvin at: marvinarosen@gmail.com for the mailing address and additional questions.
