Historical Notation Bootcamp, Aug. 5-9, 2019, Cornell University (Ithaca, NY) Anna Zayaruznaya (Yale University) and Andrew Hicks (Cornell University) are delighted to announce that the fourth annual Historical Notation Bootcamp (https://blogs.cornell.edu/hnb/) will be held August 5–9, 2019. This year’s bootcamp will take place at Cornell University’s Department of Music and Carl A. Kroch Library. The four-and-a-half-day seminar offers a practical and theoretical overview of medieval musical notations, from neumes to early print sources. Participants will acquire the basic skills needed to work with historical musical sources, make sense of source-based analyses, and sing from original notation. The event is intended for graduate students in all fields of study, as well as undergraduates headed into graduate studies. Faculty and postdoctoral scholars are also welcome to apply. No previous knowledge of historical notation will be assumed, but experience with modern music notation is expected. The seminar is free of charge (including materials) and past participants have often been successful in securing funding from their home institutions to cover lodging and/or travel. We are now accepting online applications at: https://form.jotform.us/notation_bootcamp/application Please note that the application requires a statement of intent (max. 500 words) and a current CV. We will accept applications through May 15 and will get back to applicants shortly thereafter.
