Netherlands Section 
Annual report ISCM Netherlands Section July 2006 to November 2007

The secretariat is run by Gaudeamus which promotes contemporary music in the Netherlands and abroad, with priority for young composers and musicians. Gaudeamus has its own activities and is co producing with partners all over the world. Furthermore Gaudeamus acts as an information centre, secretariat for national and international organisations.
The documentation centre offers sheet music for solo instruments, orchestras and ensembles of every imaginable instrumentation, which may also be consulted on Internet ( Besides scores, Gaudeamus also has a collection of LPs, CDs, DVDs, a number of Dutch and foreign music periodicals, books, newspaper clippings and photo's.

Through the period Gaudeamus had many meetings with three other organizations in the music field to come to a large music institute initiated by the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Science. The outcome will be that from January 1st 2008 Gaudeamus will be merged with Donemus (Publisher and information centre for Dutch contemporary music), De Kamervraag (intermediary and advising organization for musicians and venues) and the Jazz organizations. This will force us to move to a new and larger office. Meanwhile we will try to keep the ISCM's national and international web page up to date as we did in the past.
We were happy that we could insert some news items in the ISCM News Letter such as call for scores and announcements of festivals.
