Historical Notation Bootcamp, Aug. 7-11, 2017

Andrew Hicks (Cornell University) and Anna Zayaruznaya (Yale University)
are delighted to announce that the second annual Historical Notation Boo
tcamp <http://blogs.cornell.edu/hnb/> will be held August 7–11, 2017 at Yale’s
newly renovated Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library, with the
generous support of Yale University and Cornell University. This
four-and-a-half-day seminar offers a primer in the theoretical grounding
and practical know-how of medieval musical notations, from neumes to early
print sources. Get the basic skills you need to work with musical sources,
make sense of source-based analyses, and sing from original notation. The
event is open to graduate students in all fields of study, as well as
undergraduates headed into graduate studies. No previous knowledge of
historical notation will be assumed, but experience with modern music
notation is required. The seminar is free of charge (including meals and
materials). Support for lodging may be available, though participants will
need to arrange their own transportation.
