The Institute of Musical Research, University of London, is pleased to 
announce an international conference on

The Symphony Orchestra as Cultural Phenomenon



Dates: 1–3 July 2010
Location: Institute of Musical Research, University of London, Senate House

Guest speakers include: James Dillon (University of Minnesota), Tina Ramnarine 
(Royal Holloway, University of London), David Wright (Royal College of Music), 
Emile Wennekes (Utrecht University)

Conference abstract: Edward Elgar described the symphony orchestra as ‘the 
mighty engine, the vehicle of the highest form of art ever known to the world’, 
and from the 1880s onwards this widely held belief gave orchestral music a 
prominent place in British musical life. In the 21st century, however, such a 
position is perhaps no longer tenable. 
What kind of society might have given rise to such a sentiment? Did other 
societies across the globe value orchestral music as highly? What might the 
orchestra’s place be in future societies? How have the changes undergone by 
different cultures and societies affected perceptions of the orchestra in the 
intervening period? To what extent can the orchestra be said to have played 
a role in the formation of those same cultures and societies? 
This conference seeks to address such questions, with an emphasis on a 
comparative, contextual approach, which we believe will better illuminate the 
significance of local and national idiosyncrasies.

Call for papers: The Programme Committee warmly welcomes proposals 
focusing on economic, political, social and cultural developments connected 
with the symphony orchestra and their effects on composers, performers, 
conductors, producers, artistic directors, back-room staff, recording 
engineers, public and private broadcasters, recording companies, publishers, 
critics, scholars, audiences, listeners, viewers, fundraisers, patrons, arts 
councils, and so forth; or the ‘outcomes’ of their activity, including, but not 
limited to, such things as scores, recordings, concerts, lectures, essays, 
books, criticism, interviews, commissions and contracts.  Those submitting 
proposals may also wish to address the relationship between historical context 
and place (such as venues, cities, and countries), or the formation and 
dissemination of ideas about the orchestra.

Proposals of 250 words maximum are invited for the following:

•	Papers (20 minutes maximum, with 10 minutes discussion)

Proposals of 650 words maximum are invited for the following:

•	Themed paper sessions of three or four papers (to include a proposal 
of 300 words maximum outlining the purpose of the themed session, along with 
brief explanations of each of the individual papers to be included – each paper 
to be 20 minutes maximum plus ten minutes discussion)

DEADLINE for proposals: 5pm (GMT), Monday, 30 November 2009
Results Announced: mid-January 2010
Preliminary Programme: mid-January 2010

Please submit by email, in an attachment including your full name and contact 
details, to the IMR Administrator Mrs Valerie James, at [log in to unmask]  

Proposals will be anonymised before consideration by the Programme 
Committee.

Programme Committee: Stephen Cottrell (Goldsmiths College, University of 
London), Rachel Cowgill (Liverpool Hope University), Jonathan Cross 
(University of Oxford), John Irving (Institute of Musical Research), Jann Pasler 
(University of California, San Diego), Julian Rushton (University of Leeds),
