2015 Forum

In memoriam John H. Corina, long-time SCL member, who died on Dec. 13, 2014. [Obituary]

26-28 February 2015

Converse College, Spartanburg, South Carolina

The International Alliance for Women in Music (IAWM) will share the stage with SCL for a part of the Forum at Converse. This exciting development will provide members of each organization opportunities to meet and become more aware of the activities and mission of each group.

SCL members may submit up to 3 (three) scores for consideration, for solo or combinations of the following:

Soprano voice (multiple singers)
Flute (up to three players)
Oboe (1)
Clarinet (1)
Saxophone (1) [note, we cannot accommodate clarinet and sax in the same work]
Violin (1)
Piano (1)
Fixed media (stereo playback of an audio file of electronic or digitally-produced sound)

Other instruments may be available—negotiations are in process, and updated information will be sent via e-mail ASAP.

As always, members are also encouraged to provide their own performers in any configuration that you can manage. For programming purposes, please send your score and recording and accurate duration, as well as limitations on which day and time of day your performers can be in Spartanburg.

Scores (and mp3 audio files) may be submitted as PDF attachments to an e-mail message, sent to:

Or, “hard copies” (printed, bound scores) may be sent via postal service to:

Dr. Scott Robbins
Special Assistant to the Dean
Professor of Musicology and Composition Petrie School of Music
Converse College
580 East Main St.
Spartanburg, SC 29302

If submitting hard copy via post, please include a page with your name, a current e-mail address and/or phone number.

***In all cases—whether submitting for Converse performers, or if you plan to bring your own, or have a fixed media work, PLEASE INCLUDE ACCURATE DURATIONS for your work. Note that Timings provided by notation software may not be accurate, and it is much better to read through your scores in real time, with a stopwatch, allowing for expressive tempo changes, and for time between movements.

RECEIPT DEADLINE: 10 November 10 2014.

Once selections have been made, members will be notified to send parts as needed. **Bios and program notes should be sent to, preferably as electronic files (either in the body of an e-mail, or as an attachment in Word, Google Doc, or Pages or similar.

In the past, some SCL members who have remained active as performers have offered to perform music by other members. If you are willing to do that for the 2015 Forum at Converse, please send an e-mail stating your willingness and your instrument or voice type to:
