Call For Submissions (passed)

NOTE: DEADLINE IS NOW PASSED

Thank you to everyone who responded to our open call for proposals for IAMA Montréal 2013. The jury has now reviewed the submissions. You should expect a response very soon.

Over 50 Canadian solo performers and ensembles responded to our Call for submissions to perform Canadian repertoire at IAMA Montréal 2013. An independent jury of 3 new music professionals reviewed every application, and they remarked on the consistently high, professional quality of the submissions. The jury balanced many complex factors while putting together the programme, including a diversity of repertoire, styles, approaches, instrumentation and regional representation.
