KC VITAs is a mixed vocal ensemble dedicated to the performance of new choral and vocal music. We aim to provide opportunities for contemporary composers to have their works performed and recorded by a professional ensemble, provide performers the chance to premiere new works in close collaboration with composers, and promote the continued creation and performance of new music.
The 2017 Summer Series performances will take place in Kansas City, Missouri during the first week of August.
IMPORTANT GUIDELINES FOR COMPOSERS:
Submissions may use any combination of voice parts or soloists, with or without piano accompaniment. Submissions for mixed, male, or female choir, small ensemble, or solo voice are welcome. Unaccompanied choral scores must include a keyboard reduction. Additional instruments are welcome (parts should be included with your submission).
Submissions will be evaluated anonymously. Please remove any identifying information from your score before sending. Save your score using the title as the filename with no other identifying information (example: TITLE.pdf).
Any text used must be in the public domain or you must provide documentation showing that you have obtained the rights to reproduce, perform, and record the text with additional permission to commercially distribute the recording. Submissions shown to violate any copyright agreements will not be considered.
Submission fee: $15. Only one piece per submission. Composers may submit up to 3 entries (each as a separate submission).
