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

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.

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
