American Musicological Society, Southeast Chapter
Chapel Hill, NC, March 2001

	The spring meeting of the AMS Southeast Chapter will be held on
Saturday, March 3, at Duke University. We invite both members and
non-members to submit abstracts for proposed papers by Jan. 15 to the
address below.
	We welcome submissions in all areas of musicology. In general,
papers should follow the 20-25 minute format used at national meetings,
although we have somewhat more flexibility at chapter meetings, and would
also welcome longer submissions or proposals for presentations in special
formats, such as panel discussions or lecture recitals. Your abstract should
summarize the content of the paper or proposed session, and should include
your name, institutional affiliation (if applicable), status (i.e. graduate
student, faculty member, etc.), and information about how to contact you.
Please include your e-mail address if you have one. Please inform us as well
of any special needs you will have in delivering your paper, such as
audio-visual equipment, instruments, etc.
	The meeting at Duke will correspond with three concerts that should
be of special interest to readers of this list. On Friday, March 2, at 8:00
p.m., three distinguished Iranian musicians-Mohammad Reza Shajarian,
considered Iran's greatest vocalist, lutenist Hossein Alizadeh and spike
fiddle player Kayhan Kalhor-will present a concert of Persian classical
music at Reynolds Theater with the assistance of Homayoun Shajarian on
goblet drum and vocals. On Saturday, March 3, at 8:00 p.m., nine-time Grammy
Award winner Shirley Caesar and John P. Kee will present an evening of
gospel music at Weaver Auditorium in downtown Durham. This concert is being
organized by AMS/SE member Georgiary McElveen, a graduate student in
musicology at Duke. On Sunday, March 4, at 4:00 p.m., the Huelgas Ensemble
will present a program at Duke University Chapel centering around the
thirteen isorhythmic motets of Guillaume Dufay.
	On Friday, March 2, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
will also be hosting a day-long symposium on Louis Armstrong.  This will be
chaired by Thomas Brothers, and will include papers by Robert O'Meally,
Lawrence Gushee, Michael Cogswell, Bruce Raeburn, Kathy Ogren, Charles
Kinzer and John Joyce. Interested list readers might want to consider making
a weekend of it.
