The Historic Brass Society
International Historic Brass Symposium: Repertoire, Performance and Culture
New York City, 12-15 July 2012
The theme for the conference is broad: the history, repertoires, performance practices and cultural issues relevant to brass instruments and the environments in which they have been prominent. Though the emphasis is on historical themes the period of interest stretches through the twentieth century and all styles of music, including jazz. A special group of pedagogical sessions will focus on contemporary teaching approaches to historical performance. These sessions will be attached to a forum in which leading teachers from Europe and the USA and others will contribute.
