Lund, Sweden, October 17-20, 2012.
This conference is organised by the network Choir in Focus in connection with Southern Choral Centre and Musik i Syd. It will take place within the framework of Lund Choral Festival 2012
In order to make visible and available the contemporary dynamic development of choral research, this conference aims at encouraging communication between theory and practice. With the integration of the conference into Lund Choral Festival, the purpose is to highlight interdisciplinary investigations and interaction between practice-based and historical approaches in choral research.
