International Latin American Music Conference - Keynote Lecture - 8:00 pm, Friday, February 22, 2013 - Squires Recital Salon [map]

Dr. Geoff Baker will deliver the keynote address for the ILAMC.  Virginia Tech's First Annual International American Music Conference will take place Friday, February 22nd and 23rd, 2013 in the Old Dominion Ballroom and Squires Recital Salon. Entitled “Transcending Borders: Latin American Music and its Projection on to a World Stage,” this project has been undertaken in order to advance the field of ethnomusicology as it relates to Latin American music and culture, to promote personal and professional relationships amongst the scholars within this field, and to provide research and performance opportunities for students in an area that is underrepresented in this state and region. 

During this two day period, scholars will present papers (in English or Spanish), departmental performers (both students as well as faculty) will be prominently featured in concerts of Latin American choral and instrumental music, and a professional group from Ecuador, the Ensamble Quito 6, will be on hand to present the culminating musical performance (UCM V).  This event is free and open to the public.
