Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to submit/apply to THE MOSTLY MODERN FESTIVAL? Can't I just email or snail mail my music to you?
AME doesn't have enough time or wherewithal to carefully consider works outside of our festival. The festival portal also helps keep track of what's been submitted.
Do you make a profit from the MMF application fee? What are the application fees used for?
Fees are used to pay for the application portal (SlideRoom), the judging panels, scholarships, and if anything remains, all the artists fees for faculty, conductors, composers and chamber ensembles.
Does any of the application fee cover the actual cost of performances?
The small amount we charge for application fees only goes so far. The actual performances are mostly covered by tuition, grants, private donations, and ticket sales.
