9th Annual Conference of the Historical Keyboard Society of North
Conference Dates: Aug 5-8, 2020
Saint Paul, Minnesota
The ninth annual meeting of the Historical Keyboard Society of North America (HKSNA) celebrates the 250th birthday of Ludwig van Beethoven, and other composers throughout music history who have explored paths of innovation, as well as the early keyboards that accompanied them along the journey. In addition to this special focus, proposals related to any aspect of early keyboards (organ, clavichord, harpsichord, and pre-20th century piano) will be considered. Hosted by The Schubert Club, housed in the historic Landmark Center in St. Paul, Minnesota, 3-1/2 days of events (Wednesday afternoon through Saturday evening, August 5-8, 2020) will include the Jurow Competition Finals,* paper presentations, lecture-recitals, mini-recitals, maintenance workshops, evening concerts, a tour of the Schubert Club’s instrument collection, a masterclass, and an exhibition of publications, recordings, and instrument makers’ works. Proposals for papers, themed sessions, lecture-recitals, and mini-recitals are invited.
THE DEADLINE FOR PROPOSAL SUBMISSIONS IS JANUARY 15, 2020.
