Appel de conférences pour le « AMS Allegheny Chapter’s spring meeting », University of Pittsburgh et en ligne, 25 mars 2023.
« In a tribute to Pittsburgh’s rich gospel-music history, the American Musicological Society, in partnership with the AMS Allegheny Chapter and University of Pittsburgh Library System’s Center for American Music will present a public concert exploring the music of composer, arranger, and publisher Charles Henry Pace. With his wife Frankie, Charles ran one of the nation’s earliest and most successful independent black music publishing businesses out of Pittsburgh’s Hill District neighborhood from the mid-1930s to the 1960s. Charles’s music was distributed and performed across the nation and became an important force in Frankie’s community organizing and activism, yet much of it has been inaccessible to performers for decades, surviving only on the printing plates and negative photographs that Charles used to publish his music. The Center for American Music at the University of Pittsburgh Library System is where the Pace archive is housed.
In conjunction with the concert, on the same day the University of Pittsburgh Library System will host the AMS Allegheny Chapter’s spring meeting, with a keynote lecture featuring Mark Burford. »
