Winner Announcement! 2013 Call for Scores
The Fifth Floor Collective is very happy to officially announce that the winner of the 2013 Call for Scores is composer Michael Boyd with his wonderfully innovative Bob’s Party. The panel of judges included FFC members Andrew Paul Jackson and Patrick Greene, along with Transient Canvas (Matt Sharrock and Amy Advocat) and Balletik Duo (Natalie Calma and Laurel Black).
We were lucky to have an exceptionally diverse, rich field of entrants, and this decision was one that we spent many hours coming to. We had a great international turnout this year, with pieces (of uniformly high quality) coming in from Brazil, Canada, Italy, Mexico, and the Netherlands. We also had the pleasure of reading a wealth of material from throughout the United States (Alabama, California, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Jersey, North Carolina, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Washington).
We feel confident that you’ll love Boyd’s Bob’s Party as much as we do, and that you’ll enjoy hearing Transient Canvas and Balletik Duo play the hell out of it at the final concert of our third season (June 4, 2013, at the Davis Square Theater in Somerville, MA).
We’ll hopefully be able to program some more of the music from this Call next season. Some of you might be hearing from us shortly!
Thank you, though, to everyone who entered. We had a wonderful time going through the scores, and can’t wait to do it all over again next year.
