What's Next for the “Great American Symphony”?

The Frederick Loewe Symposium in American Music

April 9-14, 2018, Redlands

Composer in Residence: Christopher Theofanidis
Scholar in Residence: Susan Key

 

For the 2018 Frederick Loewe Symposium in American Music we invite presentations on the American symphony as genre, medium, and institution. Inspired by Composer in Residence Christopher Theofanidis — in particular his collaborations with conductor Robert Spano and the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra — we will examine the evolution of symphonic writing in the Americas and the past, present, and future roles of the symphony orchestra in public life. Questions of repertoire and representation, community engagement and creative process, and the education of both audiences and new generations of musicians continue to shape the realities of American symphonic music. In response to these questions, we particularly welcome interdisciplinary papers, collaborative presentations, proposed panels, and alternate formats.

Individual presentations should last 20 minutes with a following period of 10 minutes for discussion. Please submit an abstract of no more than 500 words to loewesymposium -at- gmail.com. Include your contact information and any technology or other requirements with the abstract, as well as a brief description of your proposed format if it differs substantially from a 20-minute paper. Submissions are due by November 30, 2017. Participants will be notified in early December.

Concerts and master classes will take place throughout the week, with the presentations, keynote talk, and a final concert with the Redlands Symphony Orchestra on April 13 and 14, 2018. Please visit our website for information on this and prior symposia
