Coronavirus Update

Last updated: 6 April 2020

Dear NYCEMF participants,

We regret to inform you that we have decided to cancel NYCEMF for 2020. In New York, people are quarantined at home until at least the end of April, and that restriction likely will be extended. It is clear to us now that life here will not be back to normal by June. Besides that, New York University, where we were going to hold most of our events, has informed us that it will be closed at the time the festival was supposed to happen.

We are hoping to arrange some kind of virtual presentation for as many as possible of the works accepted for performance this year, and we hope to have an even bigger festival in 2021. We wish to thank everyone who submitted works this year, and we hope to see you in 2021!

With every best wish for your health, safety, and musical work,

Hubert Howe, Director
