Rising composers early in their careers are welcomed and encouraged to submit to cellist Joshua Lyphout's 2023 Call for Scores, "Idiosyncrasies"! Up to 60 minutes of music will be selected. All winning composers will be awarded a prize of up to $600, have their piece premiered on a recital in the Spring of 2024 at Bowling Green State University, and receive a professional studio recording. Composers are encouraged to submit their music regardless of compositional style, all submissions will be considered equally and on their own terms.

This Call for Scores was funded in part by the MidAmerican Center for Contemporary Music at the College of Musical Arts of Bowling Green State University and the Hansen Music Fellowship Program.
