    1. 2019 Summer Meeting

    On Monday, January 28, 2019, the National Composer Association Summer Meeting was held at the Institute of Chile, located in 435 Almirante Montt, Santiago. The objectives of this ordinary session were the following: to report the bi-monthly newsletter, to detail the progress on the content published on the website, to deliver the report of the meetings from the Council for the Promotion of National Music of the Ministry of Culture, Arts and Heritage, to update the collective agreement with the Sociedad Chilena de Derecho de Autor (SCD), and to carry out the elections of the new executive committee 2019-2020.

    With 32 votes cast, David Cortés was elected as the new President of the National Composers Association (ANC) obtaining 100 percent support. And also, the constitution of the new board was rectified: David Cortés, President; Rodrigo Herrera, Secretary; Valeria Valle, Treasurer; Ximena Matamoros, Advisor and Fernando Carrasco, Advisor.

    2. National Composers Association Dossier

    Between January and March 2019, pictures, press clipping and relevant documentation for the ANC were collected to prepare the institutional Dossier. This tool allows us to show quickly who we are and what we do, thus, efficiently presenting our background to the different cultural operators and institutions both in Chile and abroad.

    3. Concert Season “ANC in autumn”

    This concert season originated from the need to contribute to the promotion of music of Chilean composers. It was held in the first semester of 2019. Between 2013 and 2019, a variety of programs were designed where different generations of composers had the opportunity to participate.

    Sala América, the main hall at the Chilean National Library, was chosen as the place for this initiative. The hall not only has a strategic location but also is a place where different universities and cultural entities meet, which allowed them to show their work in a neutral area.

    The program included: four concerts, a book presentation, a thesis presentation and a round table in Santiago, Paine and Paihuano.

    7. Newsletter

    The Newsletter team under the direction of Nicolás Cortés published six bulletins in 2019. From the wide range of writings, we would like to highlight the contribution of the following members: Does good music exist? by Gabriel Matthey (Newsletter Nº3), About Alba Rosa Viva! Festival by Mario Oyanadel (Newsletter Nº3), National Editorial: promotion and protection of the music from Chilean composers, by Carlos Zamora (Newsletter Nº3), Competition “Composers in Region - FantasieMusik”, by Tamara Miller (Newsletter Nº4), The birds sing badly by Gabriel Matthey (Newsletter Nº5), Musicahora Festival: an opportunity for reflection on a practice horizon by Esteban Correa (Newsletter Nº8).

    In Newsletter Nº8, we launched a new section called “Contexto”, where we invited our members to share short opinions about current issues, in this case, the social outbreak we are experiencing. This section also features the ANC statement and comments from Rolando Cori and Mario Oyanadel about the current issues in the country.

    8. New Projects

    During 2019, two new projects were designed. These projects aim to work together with the different parties involved in the Chilean music industry and to encourage promotion. The first project “Enlazar: First Meeting of the Chilean Classical Music Industry” will call on agents from institutions and companies, programmers, interpreters, cultural agents, musicologists, composers, directors, editors, publishers and journalists to participate as lecturers or recognized professionals in one of the two days of the meeting. This will carry on an analysis of the current state of the classical music industry and it will allow exchange between all the cultural agents.

    The second project is intended to create a YouTube channel where a group of visual artists called on by our member Mario Oyanadel will create watercolour paintings inspired by the music from Chilean composers.
