Founded and first named in honor of Oscar Sonneck ( ), early Chief of the Library of Congress Music Division and the pioneer scholar of American music, the Society for American Music is a constituent member of the American Council of Learned Societies. It is designated as a tax-exempt organization, 501(c)(3), by the Internal Revenue Service. Conferences held each year in the early spring give members the opportunity to share information and ideas, to hear performances, and to enjoy the company of others with similar interests. The Society publishes three periodicals. The Journal of the Society for American Music, a quarterly journal, is published for the Society by Cambridge University Press. Contents are chosen through review by a distinguished editorial advisory board representing the many subjects and professions within the field of American music. The Society for American Music Bulletin is published three times yearly and provides a timely and informal means by which members communicate with each other. The annual Directory provides a list of members, their postal and addresses, and telephone and fax numbers. Each member lists current topics or projects that are then indexed, providing a useful means of contact for those with shared interests. Annual dues are $75 for individuals, $50 for retirees, $35 for students, $50 for post-graduates, and $30 for spouses or partners. Foreign memberships require $10 additional for airmail postage. Membership applications can be sent to Society for American Music, Stephen Foster Memorial, University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, PA For more information visit our website at 2 SOCIETY FOR AMERICAN MUSIC, 37th ANNUAL CONFERENCE Welcome to Cincinnati and the 37th Annual Conference of the Society for American Music. We are meeting jointly this year with the International Association for the Study of Popular Music, U.S. Branch and look forward to many fruitful exchanges with our friends in that society. SAM s Program and Local Arrangements committees, headed by Gillian Rodger and bruce mcclung, have planned a full line-up of papers, seminars, poster sessions, and concerts. Special offerings include a Lindy Hop dance lesson, an All-Sousa matinee concert, and a performance by the Percussion Group Cincinnati, in addition to our usual shape-note sing and SAM s annual brass band appearance. At least one paper session will focus on the remarkable nineteenth-century musical life of Cincinnati itself (the sixth largest North American city in 1840). Before heading out on one of the Friday afternoon excursions, you might care to attend a special open forum about SAM s Long-Range Planning process on Friday morning. Your aid in envisioning SAM s future is crucial. I very much look forward to greeting as many of you as possible over this weekend. Enjoy the Queen City on the Ohio River Valley. It is a gem!

FOR THE STUDY OF POPULAR MUSIC US 5 CCM s Corbett Auditorium reopened in 1996 after a complete redesign by Pei Cobb & Partners, Design Architects, and Kirkegaard Associates, Acousticians. 6 SOCIETY FOR AMERICAN MUSIC, 37th ANNUAL CONFERENCE Dear members of SAM and IASPM-US: It is my genuine pleasure to welcome you to the University of Cincinnati s College- Conservatory of Music (CCM) as part of the joint conference of your two organizations. We are honored to be the host institution of this prestigious event and hope that you enjoy your time on our campus as much as we will enjoy having you here. The University of Cincinnati traces its roots to 1819, and CCM s go to the founding of the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music in 1867 by Clara Baur, making it one of the oldest continuously operating music schools in the country. Just a few years later, in 1878, a rival school was formed with Theodore Thomas as its first director, the Cincinnati College of Music. These two co-existed until 1955, when fiscal realities led to the merging of the schools, forming the College-Conservatory of Music, which in turn joined the University in In the 1990s, three campus buildings were renovated to become the Corbett Center for Performing Arts, Dieterle Vocal Arts Center, and Memorial Hall; to these were added the newly built Mary Emery Hall in 1999, and the four comprise what we call the CCM Village surely among the finest facilities of any major music school in the world. Concerts for your conference will take place in Corbett Auditorium, built in the 1960s but completely renovated for a re-opening in 1996, and the Robert J. Werner Recital Hall, which opened in January In addition to our music program, CCM also contains theatre, dance, and electronic media divisions; all in all, there are over 1,200 students studying here with 104 full-time faculty and more than 60 part-time. Our music degrees include the BM, MM, DMA, and the PhD, as well as an undergraduate Performers Certificate and graduate Artist Diploma. We are the largest performing-arts presenter in the state of Ohio, with close to 1,000 performances a year. I look forward to greeting at least some of you individually, but for now this letter will have to do. I wish you all an enjoyable, stimulating, and productive conference, and hope that you will take home fond memories of the College-Conservatory of Music, the University of Cincinnati, and the city of Cincinnati! Sincerely, Frank Weinstock Interim Dean INTERNATIONAL ASSOC.

This curator-led tour features fifteen galleries devoted to permanent exhibits of art created for Cincinnati or by Cincinnati artists. The exhibition represents five themes, all of which portray the many significant contributions that the arts made to the city s development as an urban center and the many ways in which the arts reflect the identities of various groups, such as German immigrants, women, and African Americans. The Cincinnati Wing includes selections of art-carved furniture, painting, sculpture, silver, ceramics, and arts and crafts metals, as well as art pottery from Cincinnati s Rookwood Pottery Company. Guided Tour of the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center Cost: $10.00 Limited to 20 registrants; advanced registration is required. This docent-led tour offers interactive exhibits to promote an understanding of slavery and resistance movements. The exhibits bring to life the importance and relevance of struggles for freedom around the world and throughout history. In the nineteenth century, Cincinnati served as a major stop on the Underground Railroad and became an important refuge for thousands fleeing slavery. The center s principal artifact is a two-story log slave pen built in Kentucky in 1830 that was used to house slaves being shipped to auction. Through the ongoing work of the Freedom Center, modern slavery is also exposed. SOLD OUT! Guided Tour of the Union Terminal Rotunda and Cincinnati History Museum Cost: $15.00 Limited to 20 registrants; advanced registration required. Recently named as one of fifty architecturally significant buildings in America by the American Institute of Architects, Union Terminal opened in 1933 as a train station with a 180-foot rotunda outfitted in art deco splendor. It now houses four museums, an Omnimax Theater, and a four-manual E. M. Skinner organ. This docent-led tour will include the Rotunda with its huge color mosaic murals depicting the growth of the nation and Cincinnati, and the Cincinnati History Museum, which displays materials and related aspects of the history of Cincinnati and the Miami Valley region. Busses for all tours will leave from the front of the hotel at 2:15 p.m. If you would like to go on a Friday Afternoon Excursion but have not purchased a ticket, please ask for information at the Registration Desk in the Fourth Floor Lobby.
