MOSMA 2017 - Concerts

For the conferences and meetings with composers, all the composers will have conferences that will be followed by signing sessions, of free access to the public. This eliminates the signing event that was carried out last year on the last day, being a good idea as it avoids problems of availability with the composers who have to leave before that date.

Highlight that to the previously announced guests: Tyler Bates, Mac Quayle, Neal Acree, Víctor Reyes, Rupert Gregson-Williams, David Shire and Trevor Jones, the name of Zacarías M. de la Riva has been added, who will present his soundtrack for Tad Jones 2 in exclusive during the festival.
