Midwest Graduate Music Consortium
Chicago, March 2001
The following is a call for papers and scores, for the fifth annual meeting of the Midwest Graduate Music Consortium. MIDWEST GRADUATE MUSIC CONSORTIUM Fifth Annual Meeting March 30-31, 2001 The University of Chicago The Midwest Graduate Music Consortium is a joint venture organized by graduate students from the University of Wisconsin at Madison and the University of Chicago that allows graduate students and advanced undergraduates in various fields of music to come together and share ideas on a vast array of topics. The 2001 meeting will be held on the campus of the University of Chicago, and will include paper sessions, a concert of new music, and a keynote address. CALL FOR PAPERS The program committee invites all graduate and advanced undergraduate students to submit proposals for papers related to music theory, analysis, ethnomusicology, history, or any other topic concerning the study and practice of music. We ask that proposals are typed, double-spaced, and fall within a 3-5 page limit (from which diagrams and musical examples are excluded). The presentation will have to fit into a thirty minute time slot; therefore, papers should be about twenty minutes in length, allowing time for a brief introduction and follow-up questions. CALL FOR SCORES The program committee invites all composers currently engaged in graduate or advanced undergraduate study to submit compositions for consideration in the programming of a concert of new chamber music which will take place on Friday, March 30, 2001. Performances will be given by musicians from the University of Chicago community, which includes players on all major instruments. No restrictions are placed on instrumentation or duration; however, shorter works for smaller ensembles that do not call for exotic instruments are more likely to be programmed. Composers who are able to provide their own players should indicate this in their cover letters. SUBMISSIONS Please send five copies of your proposal or score (composers, please see below), omitting your name (or any other identifying marks), along with a cover letter providing your name, mailing address(es), telephone number(s), email address(es), institutional affiliation, and title of the proposed paper or composition to: Yonatan Malin, MGMC Program Chair Department of Music 1010 East 59th Street Chicago, IL 60637 USA Proposals must be received with a postmark of no later than January 8, 2001. Composers: Only one of your five copies needs to be a high-quality bound score. You may include a recording of the proposed composition, but this is not required. Material will be returned to you if you enclose a pre-paid addressed envelope. This call for papers, additional information about the Midwest Graduate Music Consortium, and programs from past conferences are all available on the MGMC website, at http://humanities.uchicago.edu/orgs/mgmc If you have any questions, please contact Yonatan Malin at the address above or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
