Birmingham Baroque 2021
Registration for Birmingham Baroque 2021 is now open!
Thursday July 15 to Saturday July 17, delivered online via Zoom.
We have endeavoured to keep fees as low as possible, with standard registration costing £30 and a discounted rate of £25 for students/those who are retired. The two conference concerts are also included in the price (there is no need to book these separately).
Thanks to the generosity of the Music and Letters Trust, we are also in a position to offer 30 fee waivers to students and early career researchers (within two years of graduation and without institutional support). Unlike our planned competitive fee-waiver scheme for last year, these will be available on a first-come, first-served basis by using the code BAROQUE21 when registering.
Registered delegates will receive links to pre-recorded papers and live Zoom discussion session on June 30th.
We look forward to 'seeing' you there!
Birmingham Baroque 2021 Originally scheduled for 2020, the Biennial Baroque conference will now take place in July. The largest international conference dedicated to Baroque music in the world, it will feature the latest research alongside concerts from leading early music performers
It is with a heavy heart that we have made the decision that Birmingham Biennial Baroque will move online, running from 14-18 July 2021. We hope that – government and institutional guidance allowing – we may be in a position to have live concerts (which would be available to be live-streamed); if this is the case then we would look to explore whether it is possible to have some sort of in-person element for those who are able to travel to Birmingham. The conference would be available in its entirety online (so that those who can’t join us wouldn’t miss out), with many opportunities for social activities and performances, but it may be that some post-paper discussions could be both live and online. There will be a conference fee for this online event, but we will endeavour to keep costs as low as is reasonable, and will be transparent about what the fee covers.
Because of the move to an online event there is space for a limited number of new papers, designed specifically for postgraduate researchers. If you haven't already submitted an abstract for Birmingham Baroque, and would like to, please e-mail your 250-word abstract to [email protected] by midnight on Friday 15 January 2021. Please spread the word if you know of anyone who might be interested!
Find a project - M4C
Hello everyone! We're still busy working away on Birmingham Baroque 2021. In the meantime, though, we are advertising competition for doctoral awards, including a Collaborative Doctoral Award with our conference ensemble-in-residence, Ex Cathedra (details below). Please do share with anyone you think might be interested!
The Forum for Seventeenth- and Eighteenth-Century Music at Royal Birmingham Conservatoire (part of Birmingham City University) are delighted to invite applications for a Collaborative Doctoral Award with renowned choral ensemble Ex Cathedra (www.excathedra.co.uk) through the Midlands 4 Cities Doctoral Training Partnership. In the ‘Giving New Voices to Old Music: Baroque Vocal Music with Ex Cathedra’ project the doctoral researcher will create critical editions of hitherto unedited choral music from the period 1580–1740 and work with Ex Cathedra to explore issues of performance practice relating to their choice of repertoire. Applications are open to both UK and international students and the award covers both tuition fees and stipend (although tuition fees will only be paid at the UK rate). Further details are available here: https://www.midlands4cities.ac.uk/find-a-project/ or by contacting Dr Carrie Churnside ([email protected]). Expressions of Interest must be received by 30 November 2020 in the manner described below.
In addition, we welcome applications for the open competition.
The AHRC-funded Midlands4Cities Doctoral Training Partnership (M4C) brings together eight leading universities across the Midlands to support the professional and personal development of the next generation of arts and humanities doctoral researchers. M4C is a collaboration between the University of Birmingham, Birmingham City University, University of Warwick, Coventry University, University of Leicester, De Montfort University, Nottingham Trent University and The University of Nottingham.
M4C is awarding up to 89 doctoral studentships for UK and International applicants for 2021 entry through an open competition and 21 Collaborative Doctoral Awards (CDA) through a linked competition with a range of partner organisations in the cultural, creative and heritage sector.
Royal Birmingham Conservatoire at Birmingham City University is inviting applications from students whose research interests connect with our Forum for Seventeenth- and Eighteenth-Century Music, including:
• Performance Practices of the Early Baroque (Jamie Savan)
• French Baroque Music (intersecting with our French Music Research Hub), notably 17th- and 18th-century French music from Lully and Charpentier to Rameau (Shirley Thompson and Graham Sadler)
• Italian Baroque Music (Carrie Churnside)
• Late Eighteenth-Century Austro-Germanic music, notably Beethoven (Siân Derry)
Royal Birmingham Conservatoire also hosts a significant collection of historical instruments and we welcome studies with a focus on performance practice and/or critical editing.
For details of the full range of Royal Birmingham Conservatoire staff and research specialisms offered, including for performance studies, music technology and musicology, please go to https://www.bcu.ac.uk/research/midlands4cities/music.

Byrd, Christ rising - 'virtual choir'
Happy Easter! To celebrate here is a video from Ex Cathedra choir giving a little taster of what we can look forward to in July 2021. Stay safe, and see you then.
It is with a very heavy heart that I regret to inform you that we have taken the decision to postpone the Biennial Baroque conference. It will come as no surprise that the global situation at the moment, as well as our own position here in the UK, means that it is impossible to plan for such a large event when we simply don’t know what the coming months will bring.
We are instead proposing to move the conference to July 2021. We are in the process of working out the logistics and unfortunately are not yet in a position to confirm dates, but hope to be able to do so very soon. Naturally there will be the opportunity for you to revise your abstract, as well as to submit a new one should you wish: we’ll confirm the details in due course. For the moment, though, I’d like to thank you very much for your patience and wish you all the very best (and the best of health) in these difficult times.
Carrie (on behalf of the Biennial Baroque Programme Committee)
The call for papers for the 19th Biennial International Baroque Music Conference is now closed. Programme Committee members are considering all the proposals and we are hoping to finalise the programme and notify applicants by the end of February. This will include applications to the fee waiver scheme.
Information about conference fees, accommodation, and registration will be finalised at the beginning of March.
We will continue to post updates here and on our website. You can also follow on Twitter to keep up to date with our plans.
Just to clear up any concerns: the email address for proposals for Birmingham Baroque 2020 is [email protected]. A small number of proposals have gone to Max in Cremona (thanks to a faulty link fixed last week), but please be assured these have all been forwarded to us! 📨
📖 Don't forget! The deadline for abstracts for Birmingham Baroque 2020 is this Friday, January 17th. We've had lots of fantastic proposals and it already promises to be a really interesting conference. 📖
🎄We're signing off for the Christmas break, but are looking forward to an inbox full of abstracts in the New Year! With all best wishes for the season from the Birmingham Baroque 2020 committee 🎄
Don't forget that the deadline for proposals for the Biennial Baroque conference is just over a month away (Friday 17 January 2020) ... we look forward to receiving them all very soon!

We look forward to welcoming you to Birmingham in July 2020!
The 19th Biennial International Conference on Baroque Music will be hosted by Royal Birmingham Conservatoire (Birmingham City University, UK) from Wednesday 15 July to Sunday 19 July 2020.
The conference committee invites proposals for:
- Individual papers of 20 minutes in duration (followed by questions and discussion)

- Themed and round-table sessions of 90 minutes in duration, including discussion

To this end a number of fee waivers will be made available to both PhD students and to post-docs (up to two years since graduation) without institutional affiliation. The awards will be given to those proposals considered by the Organising committee to be the strongest: applicants should indicate when submitting their proposal that they wish to be considered for the scheme. (For further details see the Guidance Notes available at: https://birminghambaroque2020.weebly.com). All doctoral students, regardless of whether or not they apply for a fee waiver, must also include a letter of recommendation from their supervisor; all post-doc researchers applying to the fee-waiver scheme must include a supporting statement from an established academic familiar with their work.
The deadline for receipt of abstracts is midnight (UK time) on Friday 17 January 2020.
Individuals may submit one proposal in the form of an abstract of not more than 250 words (individual papers, lecture-recitals, poster presentations), or not more than 350 words (round-table sessions). For lecture-recitals please also attach the repertoire and a sample recording.
The abstract should be preceded by information under the following headings:
• Institution (where applicable)
