About PUBLIQ Access
2013 marks the inauguration of PUBLIQuartet's Emerging Composers Program: PUBLIQ Access! This program is designed to promote new works for the string quartet and highlight the voices of today’s emerging composers. PQ will host the annual event in the Spring at the Dimenna Center in New York City where the chosen composers of this competition will have their pieces showcased. After each concert there will be an open discussion featuring notable new music performers and composers. This year we are pleased to announce that the panelists will be Mark Steinberg of the Brentano Quartet, David Bowlin of the International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE), Nadia Sirota of the American Contemporary Music Ensemble (ACME) and yMusic, and Laura Kaminsky, composer and Artistic Director of Symphony Space.
The goal of PUBLIQ Access is to begin building long lasting relationships with today’s composers. We hope to carry the music we connect with in our repertoire for years to come.
This is a great opportunity to work closely with a professional string quartet with extensive new music, improvisation, and composition experience. Composers can submit a pre-existing string quartet or write a piece specifically for this submission. The number of pieces selected will be determined by the length of the final performance (approximately 60 minutes).
All PUBLIQ Access concerts are free and open to the public.
