Early Music Conference "Musicking: Cultural Considerations"
CFP Deadline: November 1, 2017
Conference Dates: April 10-14, 2018
University of Oregon School
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 Youtube.com 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 facets.
All proposals should be sent by Wednesday, November 1, 2017 through the Musicking website. Please visit https://blogs.uoregon.edu/
