an emerging composers program
PUBLIQ Access is a program which promotes new works for the string quartet and highlights the voices of today’s emerging composers. PQA is a genre-independent program, is designed to promote under-represented music in the string quartet repertoire regardless of style, including jazz, improvised music, and electronic music.
Each PQA cycle culminates in a high profile showcase concert featuring the chosen compositions and a panel discussion with distinguished composers, performers, and academics (to be announced soon!).
The goal of PUBLIQ Access is to bring exposure of the chosen pieces to the widest possible reach through performances of the highest quality and audience engagement through talks, panels, and free concerts. Every PQ concert features work from their PUBLIQ Access program including all performances on tour and even their high profile concerts, including their upcoming Carnegie Hall debut.
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.
