CFAMC National Conference 2020

Preliminary Information

Next year the CFAMC national conference will be held at Biola University which, for those who have never been there, is in La Mirada, California, a suburb of Los Angeles. Biola is a Christian university created in 1908 with about 6200 students. (By the way it’s “Biola” not “Viola” – founded as the “Bible Institute of Los Angeles.”)

At this point the call for scores will include orchestra, symphonic winds, choir, and 3 chamber ensembles: string quartet, “Pierrot” ensemble (flute, clarinet, violin, cello, piano, and voice) and HUB, which is a Boston-based chamber group consisting of flute, clarinet, violin, and cello. Composers are encouraged to write pieces specifically for this group. The dates will likely be similar to those of this conference.

Biola is about 40 minutes from the beach, 40 minutes from Hollywood, and 40 minutes from my house in case anyone needs a place to stay. Hope to see you in 2020!.
