                   Dear friends, family and colleagues,

We would like to invite you to the Second Annual New Music Concert presented by Melos Music,
a collective of contemporary concert music composers from across the United States. The concert will
take place in San Francisco, California on Friday, August 19th at 7 p.m. at the Community Music
Center, 544 Capp Street, and will feature ten new works performed by members of San Francisco
Bay-area new music group Nonsemble 6, as well as performers from San Francisco Conservatory,
the Yale School of Music, the Curtis Institute of Music, and other outstanding institutions.

We hope you will be interested in attending this annual concert series through which
Melos brings contemporary music to audiences across the United States!
