CALL FOR WORKS (Duets) – Deadline for submission: Dec. 15, 2022 (and ongoing)


There is no age, gender, or nationality restriction on this call. Shorter works are sometimes preferred.

The genre of music is open to Western classical art song, crossover pop, musical theatre, cabaret, electronics, opera, and other genres about which I might not know. 

Submissions from women (including, of course, trans women and transfeminine people), non-binary people, and non-cisgender men, as well as Black, Indigenous, 2SLGBTQIA+, disabled, neurodivergent/neuroqueer, and other frequently excluded and underrepresented people are very welcome. And please don’t feel obligated to share this identifying information if you wish not to, but please know you and your works are welcome here.
