Musicking: Culturally Informed Performance Practices

Announcing 2021:

The Musicking Conference Welcomes the Society for Seventeenth-Century Music!

April 12-18, 2021, University of Oregon

For our 2021 conference, we welcome the Society for Seventeenth-Century Music (SSCM) to join us in Eugene at the University of Oregon school of Music and Dance. Musicking activities will primarily occur between April 12 and April 15, and will segue into the annual SSCM conference, April 15 through April 18. We are currently preparing a number of different formats, all with the health and safety of our participants and attendees in mind. While we currently hope for an in-person event, it may be necessary to move to a hybrid or fully online version. We will keep you, our community and supporters, informed of the conference format as the academic year progresses. Participants who were accepted to present at the 2020 Musicking Conference have been invited back for 2021. Scholars and performers interested in presenting at the 2021 SSCM conference should refer to the call for proposals, or visit the SSCM website. Thank you all for your patience as we navigate the challenges of conference planning in the midst of COVID-19. We hope to see you in April, at our Musicking-SSCM joint event, whether in Eugene or online!
“Holy cow! What an amazing performance to be a part of after an incredible week of learning about performance practice. The Musicking Conference this year at the UO completely changed how I thought of the conductor’s role, as well as the performance of early Renaissance polyphony. Topped off by a rhetorically informed and extremely musical rendition of Mozart’s Requiem, how it would’ve been performed in the 19th century, with the choir in front of the orchestra. My mind is blown.”
