Gremi d’Editorials de Música de Catalunya
AIMS is starting a collaboration with the Music Publishers Guild of Catalonia (GEMC), with the objective of introducing a Catalan repertoire for strings and piano to teachers and students from around the world, who will participate in the AIMS Academy or to visitors of the AIMS Festival.
For this reason, the GEMC is offering a number of grants for AIMS 2016. Students wishing to apply for a grant must submit a recording, performing one of the works proposed by the GEMC. The selected students will enjoy a half-price tuition scholarship and will perform their chosen work in the AIMS Festival concert.
Officially founded in 2003, GEMC is a small guild representing 90% of the music publishers in Catalonia. It represents the sector and works with the administration to define specific cultural policies.
One of the main objectives of GEMC is to promote the interests of associated members (i.e. by promoting the repertoire managed by different publishers).
In this regard, the GEMC has conducted numerous activities such as participating in fairs and activities of similar fields, recording of works by contemporary Catalan composers, concert organization, etc.
Currently GEMC has several ongoing projects such as Symphonic.cat and Piano.cat
