We’ve assembled a distinguished list of musicians to help us evaluate the 717 scores we received from composers all over the world for our upcoming Late Night at National Sawdust broadcasts.  The panelists will choose up to four scores to be performed in a public reading session in the hour and a half before we go live on air.

The panelists are:

Brian Chin
Eric Clark
Gabriela Diaz
Dan Grabois
Yotam Haber
Sungji Hong
Dorothy Lawson
Caroline Mallonee
Karim Al-Zand

We’ll announce the pieces to be included in the January reading session by the end of December.


About Late Night at National Sawdust
Late Night at National Sawdust is an innovative live concert broadcast series featuring stellar performances of stylistically diverse pieces by living composers of all generations from around the world.  The series is a partnership between ACM, New York-based Open G Records and Relevant Tones, the country’s only syndicated contemporary music radio program.

Much of the music performed on this series will be chosen from an international call for scores.  Our panel will choose several pieces to be read publicly during the first hour of the program and then a few of these works will be chosen to be performed for the broadcast. One of the broadcast works may be chosen to be recorded for release on Open G Records.

Doors open at 9:00, the readings begin at 9:30 and the broadcast begins at 11:00 sharp.  Following the broadcast will be DJs, drinks and conversation.
