19 December 2019

Submit music for choir, brass quintet and organ, or any combination of these forces for the opportunity to feature in JAM’s 2020 launch concert in London.

Anyone aged 18 or over may submit music if they are born, living or studying in the UK.

A maximum time limit of 10 minutes is stipulated. There is no minimum limit – a short fanfare is as relevant as a large piece for all the forces

Successful submissions will be performed in its launch concert at St Bride’s Church, London, on 19 March 2020.

Performers include The Chapel Choir of Selwyn College, Cambridge, Onyx Brass, organist Simon Hogan and conductor Michael Bawtree.

The deadline for entries is 19 December 2019 at 5pm. For full details on how to submit your work, please see https://www.jamconcert.org/405-2/

Selected works will be joined by previous JAM commissions by Paul Mealor (2010), Julian Philips (2012) and Daniel Saleeb (2018) for a showcase of new music.

The concert will be professionally recorded to help the composers promote their work.  

2020 marks JAM’s 20th anniversary of commissioning and promoting new music.  Over the years, the organisation’s commissions include pieces by Rory Boyle, Adam Gorb, Tom Harrold, John McCabe, Thea Musgrave and Julian Philips.

Gabriel Jackson: ‘For many years now JAM has been putting on fascinating concerts, has commissioned a substantial body of new work and given countless opportunities to emerging composers through their submissions scheme. Without them, the world would be a much duller place!’
