Welcome to our October Newsletter. In this issue, we have the latest on our Indaba; further news about the ISCM World New Music Days, together with information about next year’s event; a new call for scores as well as the usual reminder of opportunities.
As always, do let me know of any newsworthy items, for the next issue, that would help you to publicise your events in or after December. Likewise, if you hear of any composers’ or performers’ opportunities, just send an email to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

ISCM World New Music Days
More great events:
Call for Scores, ISCM World Music Days 2018
Next year, ISCM will be holding their World Music Days in Beijing, China from 19 to 26 May. They wish to share their call for scores for this event with us, as NewMusicSA is affiliated with ISCM.
As you will see from their call, they require six scores from South African composers by 31 December 2017. Members of NewMusicSA can submit for free, but are required to submit scores for selection by no later than 1 December 2017 to allow time for the final selection process. Please can interested members submit up to three scores in one of the listed categories in the call to email@example.com. The following information is required:
As there was some dispute over the selection process last year, due to some issues with the appointed selection panel and the method of selecting the final six scores, we have decided that, for this year, three of our board members will make their selection independently and the final six will be agreed by all board members. Naturally, for there to be no conflict of interest, no board member is permitted to enter this year.
Non-members of NewMusicSA are also entitled to enter. In this event, a non-member may either become a member for R200 and enter for free, or submit individually using the information in the call, for which the entry fee to ISCM is 50 Euros.
If you have any queries or concerns, you are welcome to communicate via firstname.lastname@example.org.
