Milieu is a percussion quartet based in Baltimore, MD.


Milieu is inviting composers of all ages to submit percussion quartets to be premiered in the first quarter of 2016. 

Milieu's mission as a percussion quartet is to play music that reflects the values, ideas, and aesthetics of life in 2015; this is the source of our excitement to collaborate with new composers. Broadening the audience of contemporary classical music is a often assumed but undervalued prospect of commissioning new works. When it comes to new repertoire, Milieu is looking for music that starts conversations. The first steps toward engaging a wider audience is closely collaborating with the composer. 

3 quartets will be chosen from a pool of applicants and featured at the premiere concert. In addition, 1 quartet will receive a professional film and audio recording of their work.

October 1st, 2015: deadline for submissions

November 1st, 2015: composers will be notified of results

January/February of 2016: concert of premieres at a TBA venue and date in Baltimore, MD.



Compositions should not exceed 13'00" in duration.
