66th International Rostrum of Composers: Dates Announced!

The 66th International Rostrum of Composers (IRC) will be held May 14 – 18, 2019 in San Carlos de Bariloche, Province of Rio Negro, Argentina, hosted by the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sports of the Rio Negro Province and its Orquesta Filarmónica.

For the first time in its history, the IRC will travel outside the European continent with the ambition of being more international than ever before. At the same time, as 2019 marks the 70th anniversary of the International Music Council, it would be a perfect occasion to celebrate the Five Music Rights for which the IMC stands for.

They are also happy to announce that our partners will generously offer accommodation and meals to all delegates.

In order to set a convivial ambiance for listening sessions, a welcome reception will be organized on the evening of the 13th of May.

For more than six decades, the IRC has been the most important platform for exchanging contemporary music through radio broadcasting. It is also major opportunity for professional development and exchange between radio producers and presenters.

More than 35 national radios from all over the world have participated and exchanged their contemporary music productions and – just to give you an idea – for the last two editions only, some 100 recent works have been presented and then broadcast by participants radios more than 2000 times !

As is IRC tradition, the 66th edition will also give the delegates the opportunity to have an insight into Argentina’s legendary and vibrant cultural scene through a rich side programme organized by our hosts.

IMC count (once again) on your participation, therefore please mark the dates in your calendars without delay and do not hesitate to get in touch with them for further information. Please visit: rostrumplus.net
