NewMusicSA in a time of COVID-19As our members and subscribers are no doubt aware, this is a difficult time for NewMusicSA, South Africa and indeed the World.
Up to the outbreak of COVD-19 the board of NewMusicsSA had been spending considerable energy and resources trying to re-align our community to meet new challenges and serve the needs of composers in the most effective and positive way. A special thanks must go out to Lukas Ligeti for his continuing efforts in this regard. This has now sadly been placed in considerable jeopardy by world events.
Unfortunately, in this time we all have to reflect on what is important and focus our energies. On a personal level, this means that I can no longer justify diverting time and resources to serving the company in its present form. There are simply too many legacy, structural and organisational issues to resolve in an organic manner. If we are to continue at all, radical changes need to be made.
I invite feedback and discussion on this issue, but much will depend on how the current situation plays out. In the meantime, I thank you for your continued faithfulness and support.
Chairman - NewMusicSA
[Note: The website might go down fro a little while over the next couple of days, I am trying to resolve an issue but having difficulty getting technical support at the moment. I will try to keep it up though.] - This issue has now been resolved.
