With everyone being confined to their homes for the last while, many composers have taken the opportunity to upload material for us all to upload. One such composer is Jaco Meyer. You can find many recent uploads on his YouTube channel.
We are always excited to share new material produced by our members, or even just things that our members find interesting or inspiring.
Call for suggestions
We are currently preparing to put out a call for contributions to the 2020 Bulletin and welcome any thoughts or suggestions on any aspect of the publication. Also note that the we have deprecated the member login feature on the website, since it was acting more as a barrier to participation than anything else. We continue to seek new ways to make membership rewarding and welcome any suggestions in this regard as well.
My name is Brianna Ricci and I am the Director of Communications for the São Paulo Contemporary Composers Festival. We are excited to invite composers to apply for the 3rd year's festival, which will happen from October 2nd-11th.
Opportunities include professional ensembles and orchestras to compose for, professional studio recordings, live broadcast of the concerts, lectures/masterclasses with our visiting guests, and exclusive tours of the city.
Participants can apply to have a work premiered with orchestra or chamber music.
We are also happy to announce that composers will be able to collaborate with Núcleo Redes, a fabulous dance company.
Furthermore, we are proud to invite back Christian Schulz, Director of the Vienna Symphoniker, who will be conducting the orchestral works and will also be giving masterclasses. Orchestral works will be premiered by the Unicamp Symphony Orchestra or the Brazilian National Orchestra and chamber music compositions will be performed by one of our chamber groups, including Quartetto Larianna, Fonema Consort, and special guests, Laurent Estoppey, Stanley DeLage, and, Alexandre Ribeiro, amongst others.
There will also be two composers in residence: Katharina Rosenberger and Flo Menezes.
Please share this opportunity with your students and other composers that might be interested.
