Autumn Season 2019 – New domain launched

In anticipation of an exceptionally active season with several premieres, from solo to chamber to orchestral music during October-November, the entire website was transferred to this hopefully more reachable .com domain in early September. After serving for about five years, the older copy of the website in the .co.nf domain is discontinued.
