I Theorize, therefore I Perform

The City University of New York (CUNY) Graduate Center's Music Ph.D.-D.M.A. programs are holding their tenth annual symposium for graduate students in music, though it is free and open to the public. The theme of this year's symposium is "Theorizing Performance/Performing Scholarship," which gives a great opportunity to hear research that directly affects performance. I have already heard one of the papers, by Zach Wallmark, at the Dutch-Flemish conference. It is a very interesting look at jazz pianist Andrew Hill. The conference is on April 21, at the CUNY Graduate Center, 365 Fifth Avenue, NY, NY
between 34th & 35th Streets. Here is the program:
