Society for Seventeenth-Century Music
Winston-Salem, NC, April 2003

The Society for Seventeenth-Century Music will hold
its eleventh annual Conference 3-6 April 2003 at Wake Forest University,
Winston-Salem, North Carolina. One of the featured events at the meeting
will be a seventeenth-century "Dresden" Vespers service in which those in
attendance will be invited to participate. Proposals on all aspects of
seventeenth-century music and music culture are welcome, including papers
from other fields as they relate to music.  Presentations may take a
variety of formats, including papers 20 minutes in length,
lecture-recitals (45 min.), workshops involving group participation, and
roundtable discussions.  The Irene Alm Memorial Prize will be awarded for
the best scholarly presentation given by a student.

It is the policy of the Society that a presenter cannot give a paper at
two consecutive meetings.  Abstracts not exceeding 350 words should
clearly represent the text to be given, and should indicate the
significance of its findings. Proposals for other formats should indicate
the originality and significance of the material to be presented.

Five copies of the proposal (four anonymous and one identified with name,
address, telephone, fax, and e-mail address), postmarked by 1 October
2002, should be sent to:

Dr. Beth Glixon
Program Committee, SSCM 2003
University of Kentucky
School of Music
Fine Arts 105
Lexington, KY 40506-00221

Students should identify themselves as such on one copy of the abstract,
and participants in lecture-recitals should attach short biographies.

Proposals from outside the United States and Canada may be sent by e-mail
to (please send your abstract both pasted into the body
of an e-mail and as an attachment in MSWord, WordPerfect, or another
popular format) or by FAX (one copy only) to +1-(859) 257-9576, attention
