8th Annual Meeting, Society for 17th-Century Music
Vermillion, SD, April 2000
It is a pleasure to invite you to visit America's Shrine to Music Museum at The University of South Dakota, Vermillion, for the eighth-annual conference of The Society for 17th-Century Music, April 27-30. All of the sessions will be held at the Museum, surrounded by a rich assemblage of 16th, 17th, and 18th-century musical instruments. All events will be held in the Museum's 100-seat hall. Superb acoustics make it an ideal venue for early music. Hearing our well-maintained antique keyboard instruments will be a revelation, and Belladonna's concert, "Folias Festivas," should be a delight. Vermillion is a small college town - located on a bluff overlooking the Missouri River, where Lewis & Clark camped on their way to the Pacific - where you can walk safely at night, but with no taxis and few good restaurants. In addition, you will be staying in one of several motels, rather than together in one place. For those reasons, your meals (including a candle-lit dinner on Thursday evening, continental breakfasts, and a box lunch on Sunday [take-away or eat-in] - all at the Museum - and the banquet and other meals, just a five-minute walk away) are included in a modest registration fee, based on group rates and partially underwritten. Airport transportation is also underwritten. Rooms (for a single) start at $33 (Super 8 Motel). Dorm rooms are $20.25, incl. tax. It is essential, however, that you make your motel reservations at once! Space is limited, and it is a busy time of the year. It is also important to make your airline reservations now. The program committee has put together an impressive array of papers. We look forward to sharing the Museum and our collections with all of you and extending the hospitality for which South Dakotans are well known. Please return your registration form and payment promptly, so that we can serve you better. Please read the enclosed Transportation Information BEFORE you buy your tickets, if you want to use our airport shuttle service. Sincerely yours, André P. Larson, Ph.D. Director The Society for 17th-Century Music 8th Annual Meeting Vermillion, South Dakota April 27-30, 2000 REGISTRATION FORM Name(s): ______________________________________________________________________ (print or type your name, as you wish to have it appear on your name tag) Address: ______________________________________________________________________ (print or type your institutional affiliation, if you want it to appear on your name tag) ______________________________________________________________________ City/State/Zip: _________________________________________________________________ Country: ____________________________________________ E-mail:________________ Home Phone: ________________ Work Phone: _______________ Fax: _______________ I.

HOUSING INFORMATION FOR SSCM MEMBERS STAYING IN VERMILLION Vermillion does not have a motel that is large enough to house all of the SSCM meeting participants in one, single location. Instead, you need to choose your preference from the list below. You must make your own reservation directly. Space will be tight at this time of the year. Make your reservations now! We recommend that you guarantee your reservation with a Visa or MC card. All of the accommodations will be clean and safe. Tax is 8%. Vermillion does not have taxi service. We will provide some local van transportation, if the weather is inclement. However, those of you who are arriving by air should choose a motel that is within a manageable walking distance from the Museum. It would be helpful, if those who are driving would choose motels that are farther from the Museum. Those distances are given with each entry below.

TRANSPORTATION INFORMATION FOR SSCM MEMBERS TRAVELING TO VERMILLION For those planning to arrive by air: Vermillion is served by both the Sioux Falls, South Dakota, and the Sioux City, Iowa, airports. The major carrier is Northwest Air-lines (through Minneapolis), but service is also provided by United (through Chicago or Denver) and TWA (through St. Louis). Fares are very competitive, particularly into Sioux City. Since you will be traveling on a Wednesday or Thursday and staying over a Saturday night, you should be able to take advantage of very good rates, if you book early and use a travel agent who is alert to the almost continuous special offers being made by the airlines. We often can fly round-trip from here to the East or West coasts with ticket costs in the $250-300 range, sometimes lower. A third alternative is to fly into Omaha (a highly competitive airport) and rent a car for the two-hour drive north on I-29 to Vermillion. There are early morning flights from the East Coast that will get you here early Thursday afternoon. Despite the two-hour time change, there are also some early morning flights from the West Coast that will get you here early Thursday afternoon. There are also overnight flights from West Coast cities into Minneapolis that will get you here Thursday morning. And, of course, with such modest motel rates in Vermillion, you may prefer to fly in on Wednesday evening and enjoy a leisurely Thursday morning in the Museum's galleries, before SSCM activities get underway. The Museum will provide low-cost shuttle service from both airports to Vermillion on Wednesday afternoon and evening, Thursday morning, and Thursday afternoon until 3:00 pm. We will provide shuttle service back to the airports Sunday afternoon and evening, beginning at 12:15 pm (it is a 45-minute drive to the Sioux City airport and a 65-minute drive to the Sioux Falls airport). Because Museum staff and our students must be on hand during the meeting, we can not meet flights that arrive in Sioux Falls after 3:00 pm on Thursday nor in Sioux City after 3:30 pm on Thursday. Please also note that we can not get you back to flights on Sunday that leave before 1:45 pm out of Sioux City or 2:00 pm out of Sioux Falls. Also, we can not meet any flights, arriving or departing, on Friday or Saturday. If you plan to arrive late or leave early or simply want to have the freedom of a car, both airports are served by the major car rental agencies. Advance reservations are recommended. There is Greyhound/Jackrabbit bus service into Vermillion. The nearest Amtrak station is in Omaha, Nebraska, where the trains stop in the middle of the night. From Omaha to Vermillion, you need to take a bus or rent a car for the two-hour drive north on I-29. TRANSPORTATION INFORMATION FOR SSCM MEMBERS TRAVELING TO VERMILLION Supplementary information for those arriving from Europe or Japan: In order to avoid the complication of changing airlines (and air-ports) in New York, we recommend traveling by Northwest Airlines/ KLM from Amsterdam, Frankfurt, or London, via Minneapolis, to Sioux City or Sioux Falls, or United from Milan or Paris via Chicago. If you plan to make the trip to Vermillion in one day, please plan to do it on Wednesday (or earlier in the week, if you prefer), so that we can meet your flight. If you want to return home in one day, you can fly out of Sioux City/Sioux Falls on Sunday afternoon (or later in the week, if you prefer) and be back in Europe the next morning. For those of you who plan to visit other cities in the States while you are here, some airlines have special fares that let you make several stops. These special tickets must be bought in Europe. Check with your travel agent. Just be certain that you pick an airline that flies into Sioux City or Sioux Falls . From Japan, you can take Northwest Airlines, via Minneapolis, to Sioux City or Sioux Falls. For those planning to arrive by car: Vermillion is located on South Dakota Highway 50, six miles west of the interchange with Interstate 29 (linking Kansas City, Omaha, Sioux City, Sioux Falls, Fargo, and Winnipeg), midway between I-80 (New York to San Francisco) and I-90 (Boston to Seattle). When you reach the edge of town (just before the orange overpass), do not branch off to the right on the Highway 50 bypass. Instead, continue straight ahead, under the overpass, on Hwy. 50 business route, which becomes Cherry Street. All of the motels are on Cherry, except for The Prairie Inn, which is on Dakota Street, one block north of the intersection of Cherry and Dakota. To reach the Museum, turn left on Pine Street (one block past the first traffic light, with a Burger King on the corner) and go south to Clark Street (the first stop sign). Turn right and go west three blocks to the corner of Clark and Yale Streets. The Museum is the two-story, limestone building on the right (north side of the street) with a courtyard and fountain in front. Metered visi-tor parking is available in the parking lot on the right (east side of the building). However, there is free parking on the streets just south of the Museum and in the lot at night and on weekends. If driving into Vermillion from the West on Hwy. 50 business route, turn right on N. Dakota Street (second traffic light) and go south to Clark Street (first stop sign). If driving in from the west on the Hwy. 50 bypass, turn right on N. Dakota Street (no stop light) and go south to Clark Street (second stop sign). In each instance, turn left on Clark and go two blocks east; the Museum will be on your left.
