It is a pleasure to announce the Third International Conference "Byzantine Musical Culture", a series which began in 2007 and takes place every two years. The Conferences focus on all scholarly musical, musicological, artistic, poetic and literary aspects relevant to the global theme of Byzantine Musical Culture and are open to academic scholars as well as practicing musicians and independent scholars. The Conferences also includes musical soirees, cultural events and visits to theme-related sites of interest.
The Conferences’ general focus on "Byzantine Musical Culture" shapes this year's theme:
“The Contribution of the Great Church of Christ
to Byzantine Musical Culture”.
Additionally, this year’s Conference is dedicated to the poet Ilias Tantalides. Moreover, the opening ceremonies will unveil, for the first time, a dedication to the art genius of Ioannes Skarlatos.
Moreover, the Conference is under the Aegis of His All-Holiness, the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew I.
The Conferences are co-organised by the American Society of Byzantine Music and Hymnology (ASBMH) of the University of Pittsburgh and the European Art Center for the Study of the Culture and Civilisation of the Eastern Roman State in Europe (EUARCE) which is also an advisor to the Society. We are grateful to Athens Information Technology for the generous allocation of their conference facilities.
