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.

Chamber Music also welcomes desk copies of new books for evaluating and suggestions of new books to review. The magazine does not review CDs, but publishes two recordings columns ("High Fidelity," by James M. Keller, and "Jazzin' Around," by Gene Santoro) that address recorded music by topic.
