Music At The Anthology (MATA) holds an annual festival of new music by early career composers in New York City, cultivated from an international Call for Submissions. MATA has no aesthetic bias: we welcome all types of music from fully notated to improvised, sound art, video, electronic, found instruments, toys, installations, and everything in between.

Composers are selected on the strength of their overall portfolio, and will receive either a performance of a pre-existing work or a commission to write a new piece to be produced by MATA. The performers featured by MATA have included leading chamber ensembles and soloists from around the world.

Our 2021 Call for Submissions has closed. Please sign up for our mailing list to receive updates on future opportunities.
