2017 Great American Brass Band Festival – call for papers/presentations
June 2, 2017
The Great American Brass Band Festival (GABBF) in Danville, Kentucky announces a call for papers and presentations for the 2017 GABBF Brass Symposium. The Brass Symposium will be June 2, 2017, an educational event that serves as part of the Great American Brass Band Festival, which runs June 1-4, 2017.
Presenters who are selected will be offered a $350 stipend plus free lodging on the Centre College campus.
Presentations are typically 25-30 minutes, plus 5 minutes for questions. There is no particular format required. Proposals may be academic paper presentations, performance demonstrations, historical lectures, or other formats. Creative or unusual presentation proposals are welcomed and encouraged. (Powerpoint, video and sound playback resources will be available to the presenter.)
The 2017 GABBF theme is “The Roaring Twenties,” however, papers and presentations for the Brass Symposium are not required to be on this topic. Historically, presentations have been on topics such as brass instruments, brass bands, band history, performance practice, and music history/literature.
Proposals, or questions about proposals, should be sent via email to Jason Dovel at Jason.Dovel@uky.edu.
If large files need to be sent, a Dropbox link is preferred.
Proposals must be received by November 1, 2016.
