Announcement and Presentation of Works Selected

Vancouver Pro Musica will contact all the submitters by November 1, 2017. While Pro Musica wishes to include as many submissions as possible, production costs, time constraints, and other practical concerns may require that not all submitters will have a work selected. If necessary, Vancouver Pro Musica will employ a panel of experienced composers to guide selection. Decisions of the panel will be final.
