Early Music Conference "Musicking: Cultural Considerations"

CFP Deadline: November 1, 2017

Conference Dates: April 10-14, 2018

University of Oregon School of Music and Dance, Eugene, Oregon

The goal of the Musicking conference is to stimulate student and community
interest in early music and historical performance practice studies by
offering five days of academic scholarship, educational performance
classes, and a variety of performances that will be free and open to all
students and community members. The conference will host five panel
sessions that will deal with CULTURAL CONSIDERATIONS in a broad sense. All
proposals should have direct relevance to performance practice, not
necessarily only from a purely historical point of view (from the Middle
Ages to the present), but also from a broader cultural perspective. At
least one panel focusing on performance issues relative to Mozart’s
*Requiem* will be organized.

The *Musicking* conference also invites proposals for LECTURE PERFORMANCES.
Proposals should be for programs 30-45 minutes in length, and should be
designed to engage audiences in an informal and fairly intimate setting.
Proposals should include a short concert/lecture description and music
selection, and should include an mp3 audio file or link
displaying the performer’s musical ability.

Applicants are encouraged to blur the academic distinctions of musicology,
ethnomusicology, music theory, education, modern performance practices,
historical performance practice, and other academic fields, and consider
the conference topics through a lens of *musicking*, in all its possible

All proposals should be sent by Wednesday, November 1, 2017 through the
Musicking website. Please visit
musicking/call-for-papers/ for complete submission instructions.
