*“It’s Still Rock And Roll To Me”: The Music and Lyrics of Billy Joel — A
Public Musicology Conference*
October 7-8, 2016
Colorado College, Colorado Springs, CO

“It’s Still Rock and Roll to Me” is a scholarly symposium on the music and
lyrics of Billy Joel, the consummate singer-songwriter whose compositions
translate larger cultural concerns into accessible and compelling
musical narratives. In the spirit of Joel’s music, this public musicology
conference aims to share academically oriented insights (from historical
musicology, ethnomusicology, and related disciplines) on this popular
figure and his output in an accessible and approachable manner.  The
proceedings will include papers, roundtables, an exhibition, a film
screening, a concert, and a live phone interview with Billy Joel.

Complete program and registration information is available at
<>. Registration
is currently open but will close on September 30 and is capped at 450

In an effort to make the conference as accessible as possible, those unable
to attend in person will have the opportunity to view a live stream of some
sessions.  Please click “interested” on our Facebook events page, which
will host the stream, for future updates: https://www.facebook.
