The José María Rodríguez Conserva- tory in Cuenca, Ecuador, sent its choir to Riga, Latvia, where it won a bronze medal in the 2014 World Choir Games. Our very own Jannet Alvarado Delgado, who is the director of the conservatory, accompanied the choir at the piano. Con- gratulations, Jannet!

In last month’s issue we reported that Luis Pérez Valero had won an honorable mention in the Fifth Annual Counterpoint International Competition 2014, when in fact the award was conferred upon Federico Núñez. Cayambis Music Press regrets the error.

Student Corner

Are you a music student? Would you like to stand out of the crowd at your next audition, lesson, jury or recital? We have a great selection of works that you might be interested in playing.
For piano, we have two volumes of characteristic pieces from around the turn of the century. For the woodwinds, we have a good number of unaccompanied works. And if you're part of a small ensemble, we really recommend you take a look at Demian Galindo's pieces for brass quintet. They're fun!

Inaugural Cayambis Concerts Announced

Join us on October 21 and 23 as we showcase world premieres from four of our artists. The concerts will be held in Blacksburg and Roanoke, Virginia. Live streaming of the concerts may even be available via our website.
Our "In the Moment!" concerts will feature music by composers from Mexico, Panama, Venezuela, Peru, Ecuador, Chile and the United States. Most of these works were recently composed and all are intended for a very contemporary ensemble that consists of winds, strings, piano and percussion. Several pieces also include a part for male voice; these will be sung by baritone Tadd Sipes. Cayambis co-owner John Walker will conduct the Sinfonietta.

Kent Holliday

Our Featured Composer

Cayambis Music Press is pleased to announce that American composer Kent Holliday is the featured composer for the month of September! Kent, who is also an accomplished pianist and an excellent teacher, respected by many, has written 68 compositions (we’re proud to say that we publish a good number of them) that have been performed in the U.S. and in many other countries around the world. Not only that, but during the entire month, when you add any of his works to your shopping cart you’ll receive 10% off that item’s regular price during checkout.

Spread the Word!

We count on our Cayambis community to help spread the word about our upcoming concerts. If you haven't already, like us on Facebook and forward this email to a friend. We still have available some ad space in the program booklet that can be reserved for a very reasonable price. Please contact us if you are interested.

Our Composers in the News

Carlos Camacho presented a concert entitled, “Rumore e Silenzio” in Panama alongside the Turkish pianist Erberk Eryilmaz. On this program, which also served as the inaugural event of the Panamanian Percussive Arts Society, Camacho gave the Panamanian premiere of the version for marimba of Roque Cordero’s Rapsodia Panameña. Camacho also participated in an interdisciplinary residency, the “Conexión Dracula,” which is an artist retreat for musicians, dancers, actors and painters held in a remote area of west central Panama. Many orchids are cultivated there, one of which is called the "Dracula," because of its resemblance to that legendary figure.
In September, Nicolás Kliwadenko’s pre+post, for bass clarinet, accordion and cello, will be premiered by the Moscow Contemporary Music Ensemble and in October, his piano piece, abaq, is slated to be premiered in Frankfurt, Germany by pianist Julio Torres. Also, an interview of Kliwadenko was recently published by the British cultural magazine, Don’t Do It. His discussion of a "trans-disciplinary" style is quite interesting.
Federico Núñez won an award in the Eduardo Alemann Ninth National Composition Competition in Argentina. On August 27 he will be presenting one of his compositions at the “vertientes sonoras” conference in Buenos Aires.
