About Call for Scores

To connect with women globally, LunART holds an annual Call for Scores, open to women composers of all ages and nationalities. Up to three works are selected to be performed at our Annual Festival which will take place the first week of June in Madison, WI.

Winning composers receive:

  • A cash prize

  • Performance of composition at the Gala Concert

  • Professional live audio & video recording of composition

  • An invitation to attend the Festival

If able to attend the festival, composers receive:

  • Free housing

  • Free entry into all festival events

  • Collaborative rehearsal time with festival performers

Since the first Call for Scores in 2018, we have received hundreds of compositions from composers around the world. While LunART celebrates both women artists both past and present, we place a special value and priority on programming works by contemporary and living composers. We welcome all composers, no matter your age and level of experience to submit new works!
