To mark the 50th anniversary of Stravinsky’s death, we are hosting a three-day festival at Louisiana State University’s College of Music & Dramatic Arts. The event will celebrate Stravinsky’s music, with a special focus on his life and work in America (1945–1971). A series of concerts will include dance music and performed works, culminating with the performance of ballet Agon with LSU dancers and the renowned Bugallo-Williams Piano Duo.
The conference committee is particularly interested in receiving paper proposals on topics related to the theme of “Stravinsky in America.” We welcome 20-minute conference paper presentations.
Proposals should be submitted no later than 16 July 2021 to the official website of the conference: lsu.edu/cmda/music/stravinsky
Paper proposals should include (1) name and university affiliation, (2) title of the talk, and (3) a detailed abstract of no more than 250 words.
Any additional questions can be directed to Inessa Bazayev, the director of the festival.
