The International Society for Contemporary Music (ISCM) is an international network of members from nearly fifty countries and is devoted to the promotion and presentation of contemporary music – the music of our time.  Since 1923, its annual festival has been organized each year by a different host. The festival presents music from each of our members, showcasing the incredible diversity of musical practice in our time.  From March 29, 2016 to April 3, 2016 the festival will take place in Tongyeong, South Korea, organized by the Tongyeong International Music Foundation.

As a member of the ISCM, Music on Main submits works for consideration to each ISCM festival.  Cassandra Miller’s Orfeo Nemico, premiered as part of Music on Main’s The Orpheus Project, was selected as part of the ISCM World Music Days 2015 in Ljubljana, Slovenia, hosted by the Society of Slovene Composers.

In November 2017, Music on Main and the Canadian League of Composers will host the ISCM World New Music Days 2017 in Vancouver and Victoria, welcoming the ISCM back to Canada for the first time since 1984.
