Call for Music

Submissions now open

Since 2000, JAM has given performances of over 180 new pieces of music, either submitted to or commissioned by the charity.

Nicholas Cleobury, conductor · Thea Musgrave CBE, composer

Successful submissions will be performed in JAM’s annual Music of Our Time concert. The works will be performed by the Chapel Choir of Selwyn College, Cambridge, Onyx Brass and organist Simon Hogan, conducted by Michael Bawtree.

This Call for Music is a rare opportunity for composers to have their music professionally performed in central London, to an audience of general public, media and music industry. Many successful submittees have enjoyed repeat performances, enhanced profile, commissions and/or been published through the networking opportunity the performance day provides. The rehearsal is a hotbed of development, working on each piece with professional musicians. The concert will be professionally recorded to help composers promote their work.

Guidelines for submission:

“My association with JAM has not only been an invaluable experience, but essential to the development of my career as a composer. It is a truly remarkable organisation that is crucial to broadening and maintaining the richness of contemporary classical music.”
Hannah Kendall
submission composer
