Society for American Music / Music Library Association

Pittsburgh, February/March 2007


The Society for American Music is pleased to announce that information and
registration is now available for our upcoming joint conference with the
Music Library Association, February 28-March 4, 2007 in Pittsburgh,
Pennsylvania.

Details for the conference may be found at: www.pitt.edu/~mla2007 or
www.american-music.org. Those wishing to register online who are not MLA
members may use the following userid (SAM27188) and password (1163597096).

The conference will take place at the Pittsburgh Hilton, located where the
Monongahela and Allegheny Rivers meet to form the Ohio River, providing a
spectacular view.  Both MLA and SAM have wonderful tours of the city
planned, including a visit to the campus of the University of Pittsburgh,
with a tour of the Stephen Foster Memorial.

The conference program will be bookended by two significant events: A
Thursday morning plenary session, "John Cage's Chess Pieces: A
Rediscovery" with a performance by pianist Margaret Leng Tan.  Closing the
conference will be a "Gershwin Extravaganza" on Sunday morning, featuring
back-to-back sessions related to Gershwin's music. We hope these two
sessions will tempt you to arrive early and stay late. The SAM and MLA
program committees have made the entire conference program transparent so
sessions are integrated specifically to address the interests of all
attendees.

We hope you will attend this important conference open to all with an
interest in American music, and look forward to welcoming you to
Pittsburgh.
