International Clarinet Association members are invited to submit proposals for live seminars and pre-recorded video performances under 25 minutes. The New Music Committee is particularly interested in virtual composer masterclass opportunities and collaborations between composers and performers. Works and presentations previously performed or presented at ClarinetFest® will not be considered.

Performance proposals will require video links of the applicant(s) performing either the proposed works or a sample of a recent performance, in the case of a world premiere, to be considered. Each applicant may submit one proposal per festival.
