|AMS/SMT Virtual 2020: Call for Performances|
Deadline: 11:59 p.m. ET, 18 february 2020
The AMS Performance Committee invites proposals for concerts, lecture-recitals, workshops, and other types of performances during the 2020 Virtual Annual Meeting, 7–8 and 14–15 November. We encourage proposals that develop a point of view, offer a programmatic focus, explore new musicological findings, or relate to the meeting’s host city or region. Proposals that engage with the Society’s diversity of interests and methodological approaches (including proposals that expand on the concept of “performance” itself) are especially welcome.
Freelance artists as well as performers and ensembles affiliated with colleges, universities, or conservatories are encouraged to submit proposals. Available presentation times include lunch hours and afternoons on Friday and Saturday (one-hour slots), and Thursday evening.
Required application materials include:
An individual may not present both a paper and a separate performance event at the meeting. If an individual submits proposals to both the Program Committee and the Performance Committee, they must state at the time of submission which proposal has precedence in case both are selected. Although the AMS is unable to offer a fee to artists, modest subsidies are occasionally available for performance-related expenses.
Materials must arrive at the AMS office no later than 11:59 p.m. EST, 18 February 2020. Exceptions cannot be made to this deadline, so please plan accordingly. Receipts will be sent to those who have submitted proposals by the deadline, and the committee will communicate its decisions by 15 April 2020.
