Pre-AMS Mini-Conference
Wednesday, Nov 8 (10:00am) through Thursday, Nov 9 (12:45pm)

February 20: We are delighted to announce that the AMS History of Theory Study Group (initiative) and SMT Interest Group will host a pre-AMS mini-conference, November 8-9, 2017, at the Hatch Recital Hall at the Eastman School of Music (Rochester, NY). The conference, on the broad theme “Instruments of Music Theory,” will feature keynote speakers Alexander Rehding (Harvard University) and Gabriela Currie (University of Minnesota), a concert by David Catalunya (University of Würzburg) on a newly reconstructed clavisimbalum (with music from the Faenza Codex and other recently discovered manuscript fragments), and an organological workshop on the sensorial perception of music-theoretical precepts featuring (inter alia) reconstructed Pythagorean bells. Please consider submitting an abstract for our call for papers, and stay tuned for further updates.
