We are delighted to welcome Vancouver-based composer Rita Ueda as our Composer-in-Residence for Sonic Boom 2024!

All BC composers are invited to submit new works written for the two Calls open this year:

  • Featured Ensemble-in-Residence: Saxophilia Saxophone Quartet (4 saxophones);
  • Featured Artist: Sarah Kwok – Solo Viola.

Live concert presentations of selected works will occur during the concert portion of our Sonic Boom Festival.

Deadline for submissions is Friday, December 8, 2023 at 11:59pm.

NOTE: There is no Call for Scores for mixed ensembles for Sonic Boom 2024.

As in previous Festivals, composers may choose to compose works for one or both of our Featured Artists. Composers may submit up to two works for the Festival. If selected (see below) a maximum of one work per composer may be performed.

Open reading sessions for pieces chosen for each Featured Artist concert are planned for early February, 2024.
