College Music Symposium: Audio Performance Archive


sink damonThe Audio Performance Archive of Symposium is a repository of the highest quality refereed music performances. All musics of the world, including masterworks from the past and new compositions in all styles of music, are eligible for inclusion. The included content highlights the broad interests of performers and composers worldwide.

The Audio Performance Archive meets the need of performers, composers, and music scholars to share their work with colleagues internationally as well as with the general public. By making available high-quality performances, Symposium shares with both the music field and the public (a) the fruits of artistic performance, research, and composition; (b) informed opinion concerning recent and historical music and music criticism; (c) the work of music faculty in higher and tertiary education, as well as independent scholars and performers; (d) information concerning the musics of the world. Taken together, the Audio Archive of Symposium provides a significant resource for musicians, scholars, and the general public, ultimately contributing to an informed citizenry.

We welcome all new and creative audio submissions from the CMS membership. The Editorial Board will evaluate submissions primarily on the quality of the content, accepting those performances that meet the highest professional standards. The Editorial Board will also evaluate the production value of the audio. Given today's easy access to devices that produce quality audio and the user-friendliness of editing software, we hope that quality audio production can be archived.

Audio performances of any length are welcome. Submitters are asked to review carefully all the guidelines before submitting projects. When the project is complete, please use the online form to submit the audio and accompanying materials. The receipt of submissions will be acknowledged by the Editor and notification of the submission's status will be provided promptly.
