Canadian works programmed at 2013 ISCM World New Music Days (Kosice/Bratislava/Vienna) /
Canadian Section selected works for 2014 Wroclaw revised

The ISCM (International Society for Contemporary Music) Canadian Section is pleased to announce that three Canadian works will be performed at the 2013 World New Music Days in Kosice, Bratislava, and Vienna. The international jury chose two works from the Canadian Section's list of Selected Works: Anna Pidgorna's solo accordion work Light-play through curtain holes, and Patrick Saint-Denis' multimedia work Trombe. In addition, the jury also chose Dániel Péter Biró's independently-submitted work Kivrot HaTa'avah. Congratulations to these composers!

Due to the regulation of the international body of the ISCM that a composer cannot be submitted for, or programmed at, two consecutive World New Music Days, we are revising our list of Selected Works for 2014. We are happy to announce that Justin Christensen's work Hand I used to hold will be included as part of the Canadian Section's national submission to World Music Days 2014 in Wroclaw, Poland.

Our list is as follows:

Justin Christensen
Hand I used to hold (Chamber orchestra)

Gabriel Dharmoo
Vaai Irandu (Solo voice)

Hope Lee
Secret of the Seven Stars (Chamber orchestra)

Nicole Lizée
Hitchcock Études (Electroacoustic music)

Jordan Nobles
Lux Antiqua (Choir)

Andrew Staniland
Pentagrams (Accordion solo, duo or trio)

The ISCM Canadian Section is pleased to be associated with these works, and we look forward to hosting our selected composers at the World Music Days Festival in 2014. 

At least one of the six works included in our national submission will be performed during the festival (the international jury can, however, select more than one of these works); we will endeavour to promote and disseminate all of these works with the hope that they will receive performances in Canada and abroad, in addition to the eventual World Music Days performance and annual ISCM Canadian Section CD printing.
