2017 Historical Notation Bootcamp

Wednesday, May 17, 2017   (0 Comments)

The 2017 Historical Notation Bootcamp will be held the week of August 7–11, to take place at Yale’s newly renovated Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library, with the generous support of Yale University and Cornell University. The event is open to graduate students in all fields of study, as well as undergraduates headed into graduate study. We are now accepting online applications at:

https://form.jotform.us/notation_bootcamp/application

Please note that the application requires a brief statement of intent (no more than 250 words) and a current CV. We will accept applications through June 1, and will get back to applicants shortly thereafter (first or second week of June).

This four-and-a-half-day seminar offers a primer in the theoretical grounding and practical know-how of medieval musical notations, from neumes to early print sources. Get the basic skills you need to work with musical sources, make sense of source-based analyses, and sing from original notation. The new schedule, preparatory readings, and travel forms will be posted on this website as we move closer to the workshop.
