The New Music On The Point Festival encourages imaginative collaboration among composers, instrumentalists, and singers
Our plans have changed…. Given the uncertainty that still surrounds group activities through the summer of 2021, New Music On The Point is reimagining its usual two-week gathering in Vermont. We are excited to announce two new initiatives in 2021:
Virtual Composition Workshop Alumni Concert Series
About the 2021 Alumni Concert Series:
We are planning a new opportunity for NMOP alumni from our first 10 years! We are accepting proposals for alumni-led concerts in venues across the country and worldwide to take place between September 1, 2021 and May 1, 2022. Not all participants need to be alumni, but those that feature a number of alumni will be prioritized. We are encouraging concert proposals that feature historically under-represented artists (which can include NMOP alumni). Grants will range from $1,000 to $2,500 per concert.
Applications will be accepted from February 1, 2021 until May 1, 2021 at 5pm (EST). Please go to our application page to learn more about how to submit a proposal.
