Announcement and Presentation of Works Selected

Vancouver Pro Musica will contact all submitters by Monday, October 29 2018. Vancouver Pro Musica will employ a panel of composers not associated with Vancouver Pro Musica to guide selection based on anonymous submissions. Decisions of the panel will be final. The works selected will be presented alongside a set of curated pieces.

Composers whose pieces are selected for performance will then be contacted to provide required performance material. Composers will be expected to attend the soundcheck on the afternoon of the concert and for the presentation of their work on November 15, 2018 at the Western Front.

Each composer with a work programmed will receive a modest honorarium for their participation.
