The Composers Circle welcomes new members. The only requirements for membership are an avid interest in our programs, attendance at a Salon and the performance there (either live or via a recording) of a short composition demonstrating proficiency in the art, and a willingness to do your share to help in producing our concerts and/or related tasks. To become a member, write to Hubert.Howe@qc.cuny.edu, and include a short biographical note similar to those on our Composer Bios web page.
Membership dues are currently $100 annually.
Once membership has been confirmed, checks payable to the New York Composers Circle can be sent to:
Treasurer, New York Composers Circle
400 Central Park West, #9P
New York, NY 10025
In addition to membership dues, composer members whose works are selected for performance at Composers Circle concerts are expected to make an additional contribution to help defray the costs of production. Currently this is $225, which covers up to two performers; beyond that, an additional $100 per performer.
