Garden of Memory 2020: Call for Proposals
New Music Bay Area is now accepting proposals for this year's Garden of Memory. If you are interested in performing this year, please fill out this form. Visit for details about the event.

There are usually openings for 10-15 new performers/ensembles each year. We are looking for music which pushes boundaries – electroacoustic, new classical, unusual jazz, new approaches to World Music, or anything unique. The music also must be respectful to the space itself, which is a Columbarium, and cannot be so loud that it intrudes on the spaces of the other performers.

Submissions will be accepted from February 16 through March 28, 2020. All submitters will be notified of acceptance or rejection by May 1.

If you have questions about filling out the submission form, email us at
