Reviving the AMS Mid-Atlantic Chapter

After several years of chapter dormancy, musicologists in the mid-Atlantic area are organizing to revive the local chapter of the American Musicological Society. We will be holding a short business meeting to elect officers and plan for a full meeting later in the year. Prior to the business meeting there will be a symposium on “Research Opportunities in the Mid-Atlantic Area” with representatives from local archives and other collections of interest to musicologists.

All are welcome. The mid-Atlantic region for the AMS traditionally includes eastern Pennsylvania, Delaware, and South Jersey. All faculty members, graduate students, independent scholars, performers, and people with an interest in musicology are encouraged to attend.

For more information, please email Elizabeth Morgan [emorgan@sju.edu] or Phil Gentry [pgentry@udel.edu].
