Pangaea Ultima (chamber ensemble)

The ISCM Canadian Section is pleased to be associated with the above works, and we look forward to hosting our selected composers at the World Music Days Festival in 2015. For more information on ISCM activities, and on the artists and their works, please review the websites listed below and/or contact the ISCM Canadian Section representatives.
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.
