Some of these organizations issue special calls for scores for performance at their gatherings (these will be posted on the ACF Opportunities webpage as we become aware of them).

Even gatherings that do not offer special showcases for new music might of interest to composers eager to learn more about writing for particular instruments or to network with performers.
