It is a pleasure to announce the Fourth 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 of that year 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.
