Once again, there are three (3) curated concerts on the festival that don't
require composers to attend (only the curator need be present). At this
time to become a curator you must be invited. What the curator does to
select the works is then their choice. We have had outstanding curated
concerts over the years. Last year, two of the three curated concerts were
from outside the United States.

I hope his clarifies my previous postings. I invite everyone to look at
the festival web site. Perhaps that would clarify some of the questions as

I also am open for anyone at anytime to send their work (SASE if return is
required, non-SASE will be archived in our studio). As I stated
previously, we present four concerts of ea/cm each year not associated with
the festival. Composers are not required to attend this series, Unbalanced
Connection (first one's next Friday (there will be a work from Spain and a
work from Sweden on the event along with student works from our studio). I
look forward to hearing all your music!
