Submission Guidelines & Advertising

Chamber Music Submissions and Editorial Queries

Articles in Chamber Music Magazine are usually assigned to professional writers by the editor, but we are also open to receiving story ideas and to reviewing unsolicited manuscripts. We publish articles on all styles of ensemble music, the arts in general, and non-musical issues that relate to music professionals' lives and careers.
