ICMuC 2018: International Chamber Music Conference 2018 - Porto

The aim of this Conference is to stimulate discussion and reflection on Chamber music.

Educationally, chamber music is a curricular unit which is widely spread in every level of music education, but with a surprisingly scarce body of research. We want to develop a broader view on chamber music, gaining insight on aspects such as creating the ensembles, group dynamics and leadership, assessment and repertoire, as well as composition practices for chamber music or the development of innovative teaching methods, programming, among others.



DATES: 21st March (afternoon) - 22nd March (morning) 2018




Contributions related with theoretical and practical aspects of Chamber Music are welcomed. All contributions must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference.

Forms of contribution:

-      Oral presentation (max. 20 minutes)

-      Lecture recital (max. 30 minutes)

-      Scores (full score, max. 10 minutes; available instruments: flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, horn, trumpet, trombone, tuba, violin, viola, cello, double bass, percussion (2 players), piano). Works including computer or other electroacoustic resources are welcomed. In order to submit scores there is a submission fee of 25€. In the case of acceptance of a work that will result in a concert performance during the conference.
