The Rocky Mountain Chapter of AMS, the Rocky Mountain Chapter of SMT, and the Southwest Chapter of SEM will be meeting in Tempe on March 30-31. So you get history, theory, and world music, all in one spot, for a very cheap price (about $5 to 10). This seems to be a trend among regional societies, perhaps as a money saver?
