ClarinetFest® 2025 – Call for Proposals


Call for Proposals 

Join us July 9–13, 2025, for a unique five-day, action-packed weekend at the beautiful Omni Hotel and the Convention Center in Fort Worth, Texas, for ClarinetFest® 2025!

The International Clarinet Association and the ClarinetFest® 2025 Artistic Leadership Team welcome your general conference proposals. Special consideration will be given to proposals matching or closely related to the main theme for this conference:

“TRANSCENDING TRADITIONS – While celebrating the storied legacy of the clarinet, the membership is encouraged to also explore beyond the traditional mainstream to showcase clinics and performances which reflect a wider view of the instrument’s journey within our connected world and allow our community to discover new avenues of expression.”

In addition to opportunities for performances throughout the conference, the Artistic Leadership Team is excited to announce the continuation of the Clarinet Learning Community at ClarinetFest®, which is structured to organize and feature all pedagogy clinics, seminars, lectures, workshops, and master classes. The Showcase Stage, a special feature of the 2021 conference, will also return in 2025 specifically to feature young student clarinet ensemble performances.

International Clarinet Association members are invited to submit proposals for all of these components for selection into the ClarinetFest® 2025 program. The maximum time allotted for any performance or presentation is 25 minutes.

The deadline for ClarinetFest® 2025 general proposal applications is October 1, 2024. There is a $20 application fee for each proposal. Proposals without accompanied payment will not be considered.

The ClarinetFest® 2025 Artistic Leadership Team is dedicated to the International Clarinet Association’s Statement of Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion ( and recognizes the importance of representation within the clarinet community at this event.

Please find more information and submit proposals at under the ClarinetFest® 2025 page. General ICA questions can be sent to Jessica Harrie at [email protected]. Conference questions can be sent to Mary Druhan at [email protected].


(Reminder: performance as a headlining artist on any recital or evening concert will also require a proposal for ClarinetFest® 2025. The deadline for this Headlining Artist application is April 1, 2024. Proposals from this pool which are not selected will be automatically rolled into the general proposal collection for consideration.)
