The Minneapolis Choir Co-op (MCC) is looking to premiere new choral works by up-and-coming composers in Minnesota for the 2024-25 season. We are offering up to three selected composers collaborative workshop/rehearsal time with an established choir of professional and pre-professional singers, a performance of the new work with professional audiovisual recording, as well as a $500 stipend.

As an ensemble, one of our goals is to provide opportunities for emerging artists to launch or accelerate their careers. We are especially seeking composers who are BIPOC, female, disabled, and/or LGBTQIA+, to help address historic exclusion from opportunities in composition, but we will consider applications from all interested composers.

If you have any questions please reach out to our team at We are looking for compositions for three performances for the season. The deadline for the first round is due August 15, 2024.

Application Questions – please send an email to answering the questions.

1. Introduce yourself in 500 words or less.
a. What is your composition training and experience?
b. Have you had works performed by ensembles before? If so, where and when?
c. How would performing with Minneapolis Choir Co-op further advance your composition career?
d. Are you BIPOC, female, disabled, and/or LGBTQIA+?
2. Submit one or two work samples, either scores and/or recordings, of compositions that showcase your artistic approach. If you don’t have work samples, describe past performances that you’ve contributed to.
3. Optionally, please share your resume if you think it will help us get to know you.
