NEW for 2021!
The Franco Committee received five student composer/performer pair applications, and has selected two to receive grant funding. The award recipients are:
The two pairs will collaborate over the coming months to compose and premiere a new work for carillon. Premiere performances will be recorded and shared online.
The GCNA is pleased to announce a new grant program to commission student composer-and-performer pairs to compose and premiere new works for carillon.
Grants of $1,000 are awarded to two collaborative composer-and-performer pairs for the composition and performance of new works for the carillon. Each award will be shared evenly between the composer and carillonneur ($500 each). Payment will be made upon completion of the project.
All applicants (composers and performers) must be enrolled as full- or part-time students at an accredited North American college, university, or conservatory with a traditional carillon, as defined by the GCNA, in the vicinity. There are no restrictions with regard to compositional style, and the composer need not be a carillonneur. Existing works are ineligible for submission. Membership in the GCNA is not required.
Each composer-and-performer pair will submit one joint application. Application materials must be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org. Each completed application will include the following:
In addition to creative vision, applications will be judged on evidence of a sound working relationship between the composer and performer. It is expected that each composer and performer will already be familiar with their partner’s goals and skills, and that they both embrace the challenges and opportunities of working as a duo.
The Franco Committee, upon receiving the score, will determine whether the GCNA will publish the score in the 2022 collection of new music. Composers agree to grant full copyright and licensing of the work to the GCNA, in accordance with the terms of the GCNA’s standard copyright assignment and publication agreement. If the GCNA declines to publish the score, the score will remain the property of the composer.
