Call for scores

Following the successful completion of Cruise Control, I am beginning a new endeavor to create more new repertoire for the horn. This call for scores is open to all composers to create a new work for horn and piano.

The parameters of the work are as follows:

  • 7-10 Minutes in Length

  • Be Adventurous

  • Extended Techniques are welcome, but no multiphonics please.

Please note that works that have been previous written and/or performed will not be accepted. The work must original and written for the purpose of this call for scores.

The entries will be reviewed by members of the horn community, as well as a group of composers. One winning entry will receive a cash prize of $2000, be premiered at a major horn gathering during 2020/2021, and recorded on my next album alongside some tremendous new works. All the works entered will be highlighted online and in a lecture at a horn conference during 2020/2021.

Submissions will be accepted through September 31, 2019. Entrants will be notified by May 1, 2020.

To enter, please email your entry to, along with a MIDI recording. Should you desire to mail your entry in, please contact me directly.

Please do not hesitate to reach out should you have any questions and thank you for your interest.
