Free portfolio review for young composers, especially BIPOC composers.
ICEBERG composers Alex Burtzos, Stephanie Ann Boyd, and Harry Stafylakis with students at the University of Memphis Summer Music Camp (June 2018).
ICEBERG New Music recognizes that there are societal and financial obstacles that too often stand in the way of career opportunities for young composers, especially composers of color. To help increase the equity of our field, we are starting a new initiative: The ADVICEBERG Project. If you are a young composer with limited access to professional coaching, and are applying for a specific opportunity - for example, a school program, competition, or festival - we invite you to meet virtually with one of our member composers for a free review of your submission materials. Our members will offer professional feedback regarding score preparation, resumé and C.V. construction, bio writing, and more.
To arrange a consultation session, email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line "ADVICEBERG - [Your Name]."
Please note: The ADVICEBERG Project is open to all composers whose background or economic status might put them at a disadvantage in the world of professional concert music. However, this program was created in June 2020 specifically in response to the ongoing protests in support of racial justice and human rights, and is first and foremost designed to provide support to young BIPOC composers. If we receive a number of responses that exceeds our capacity, preference will be given to composers who identify as BIPOC.
