    <p>Gaudeamus Muziekweek acts as the Netherlands ISCM Section. Many international activities have taken place in 2016, such as the annual festival Gaudeamus Muziekweek in September, to which since 2014 an Academy is linked: young composers from all around the world are invited to work with ensembles-in-residence to create new works, attend workshops, lectures and private lessons, and rehearse compositions which will be performed during the festival. James O’Callaghan (Canada), Anthony Vine (USA), Shih-Wei Lo (Taiwan), David Bird (USA) and Giulio Colangelo (Italy) were featured composers and candidates for the Gaudeamus Award; they worked with Ensemble Oerknal, the Bozzini Quartet, Asko|Schönberg, Insomnio, Modelo62 a.o.. The Gaudeamus Award 2016 was awarded to Anthony Vine. In total the festival programmed 111 compositions by composers from 15 European and 14 non-European countries. There were 37 world premieres. Many international coproductions took place, such as a concert by the Egyptian Contemporary Music Ensemble (in an exchange with the Egyptian ISCM Section) including several commissions to Dutch and Egyptian and Syrian composers. A co-commission with the MATA festival in New York for Israelian composer Yair Klartag. A 2-year long co-operation with the Greek National Opera in which a group of young composers, musicians and theatre makers from both countries work together towards new forms of music theatre. Immediately after the Gaudeamus Muziekweek the International Computer Music Conference 2016 was hosted by Gaudeamus in co-operation with the Utrecht Arts University dept. Music &amp; Technology. Over 350 international composers, scientists, teachers, students came to Utrecht for a long range of lectures, workshops and meetings and over 30 concerts with music for all kinds of electronics and instruments.</p>
