American Bach Society, Biennial Meeting
Washington, April 2000


The American Bach Society will hold its biennial meeting from 7-9 April
2000 at the Smithsonian Institution and Library of Congress in Washington,
DC. The theme for the meeting will be "Bach in America." 

The conference will include lectures and recitals, exhibits of Bach
manuscripts (Library of Congress) and early instruments (Smithsonian
Institution), and a performance of Bach's B-Minor Mass by the Washington
Bach Consort under the direction of J. Reilly Lewis. 

Proposals for papers on all aspects of Bach research are invited, but of
particular interest are ones that focus on the conference theme. 

Three copies of a one-page abstract should be submitted by 1 OCTOBER 1999
