ARTIST PROPOSALS

We welcome proposals from artists who are interested in taking part in future Festivals.

 

If you would like to take part in a future EMF, please download the Artist Application Form using the link below and send it to us by post, along with a copy of a recording (preferably a commercially recorded disc, but, if you are a young artist with no commercial recordings as yet, please send a sample disc). The form is an interactive PDF and so can be completed in any standard PDF viewer; or, if you prefer, it can be printed and filled in by hand. We regret we do not accept applications from prospective artists by email.

 

Please note that the EMF is booked up several years in advance, so we are currently taking bookings for a couple of years ahead. Please also note that the EMF is run on a shoestring budget, due to having no governmental / corporate support, so the fees that we are able to offer are, regrettably, modest. Please bear this in mind when citing your fee on the form.

 

Finally, as our name suggests, we only feature the work of British composers (or composers whose music could be considered “English music” in the broadest sense of the genre, or who are strongly associated with Britain and Ireland). We are also particularly interested in World Première performances, especially of works by composers of the late nineteenth to mid-twentieth centuries, and bearing these parameters in mind when making your application will facilitate our being able to find a slot for you!

A very warm thank you to all those who made the recent day of concerts at Truro Cathedral possible: to the staff of the Cathedral, for welcoming us so enthusiastically and for their help before and during the event; to all the artists, for their magnificent performances; to the volunteers and the EMF Interns, without whose contribution the day would not have been possible; and to our audiences, for supporting the concerts — we hope you found them enjoyable and stimulating.

Thank you to all who made the 2022 May EMF such a success: to all those at the venues for their invaluable help and support and for welcoming us so warmly; to the artists, for the energy and commitment of their performances; to all the volunteers who assisted with general administration, staffing the Box Office, stage-managing and stewarding, and without whose help running the Festival would simply not be possible; and, of course, to our audiences, whose enthusiasm and financial and moral support all continue to mean so much as live music-making returns and we begin to plan for the future.
