The South Florida Chamber Ensemble announces its newest initiative, the Emerging Artist Coalition.  The goal of this project is to bring peace, prosperity and beauty to the world through the works of emerging artists.  We invite emerging artists of all genres to send us their stories and work samples.  Through the Coalition we will provide emerging artists with mentors, funding opportunities, creative collaborations, and a support network to give a loud voice to the incredible but yet unknown artists of this world. Submit your stories and samples to or tweet us @sfcemusic.

Collaborating composer submission boxes are open. Please send us your refugee stories and/or your stories of #MeToo to be included in Season 8: Changing our World.  Click here to submit your story:
