Readers Conference will take place at Yale University in cooperation with the School of Music and

Prof. Paul Hawkshaw, co-editor of the New Anton Bruckner Complete Edition, and

co-sponsored by the Bruckner Society of America.

This is a wonderful opportunity for Brucknerians to meet together in pleasant surroundings, hear papers from leading scholars in the field and from other Bruckner enthusiasts. As with the Journal itself, non-academic music lovers need not be intimidated and can be sure they will find a friendly welcome and much to enjoy, to think about and discuss.

In addition to presentations and informal gatherings, this Conference will also feature a

concert on 6 April by the

Yale Philharmonia with Peter Oundjian performing Bruckner's Seventh Symphony

New Anton Bruckner Complete Edition!

Registration includes attendance to all events: Two days of presentations by Bruckner scholars and enthusiasts – ticket to the concert, including preconcert talk with the conductor and editor Paul Hawkshaw – an informal reception with food and drink between presentation days – beverages and food during coffee breaks.

The Conference fee is $60 – £60 – €60. Reserve your place at the Conference by sending $/£/30 deposit, with the balance to be paid on arrival – or send payment in full now. Details are provided below, including PayPal links.
