Fifteenth Conference, International Society for the Investigation and Promotion of Wind Music (IGEB)
Lana, South Tyrol, Italy, July 2002


CALL FOR PAPERS:

The 15th conference of the International Society for the Investigation and
Promotion of Wind Music (IGEB) will take place in Lana, South Tyrol,
Italy, from July 4th to 9th, 2002.

Suggested topics for the conference include:

Historical and contemporary cross connections and influences in
	international wind music development
The influences of traditional music on contemporary band compositions
	(from the arrangement of folk songs to including traditional music
	from non-European cultural areas)
Composing for the wind band: a new and rapid possibility for contemporary
	composers to develop an international reputation? (For ex., De
	Meij (Lord of the Rings) or Ito (Gloriosa), whose compositions
	were heard on all continents in a very short time. Can this be
	compared to the reception of the band works of Hindemith and 
	Schoenberg?)

Directors, musicians, educators, musicologists and all people interested
in wind band music are invited to submit papers on the above as well as
general research topics and reports on theses and dissertations.

Deadline: May 1, 2002
