First of all: all of us at CoMA send our best wishes to all of you and your families and communities in these extraordinarily difficult times.
Extraordinary, not least, because of the overnight halt to live music-making culture.
But from a CoMA perspective, there’s still so much we will do to continue our work – more vital than ever – of commissioning composers, creating and promoting their repertoire, and finding new ways to collaborate and support musicians.
As the new-music community focuses its creativity on-line, we’ll be there too – and we need your ideas via firstname.lastname@example.org Any thoughts on how to take ensemble rehearsals/communities/performances on-line are welcome, as well as any ideas about how to work together to create new music-making opportunities for our audiences, from tutorials to performances. And anything you would like to see that isn’t out there at the moment – let us know.
That strength of CoMA’s communities has always been the defining feature of what we do, and it’s needed, creatively and socially, more than ever. Keep in touch
Tom Service, Chair of CoMA
