MATA FESTIVAL​

About MATA Jr.

Founded in 2014 as the educational arm of MATA, MATA Jr. is a collaborative learning experience, connecting pre-college composers from around the world with MATA artists and performers. Over the course of several months, six pre-college composers work with MATA Jr.’s composer-mentors as they write new works, culminating in an evening of world premieres by New York’s top performers of new music. MATA Jr. participants are chosen through a free, global online call for submissions.  Submissions are assessed by a jury consisting of MATA’s staff and that year’s composer-mentors, selected from MATA’s esteemed alumni.

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.
