I had the great privilege to attend the IMC 6th World Forum on Music in Paris, 28 September-1 October. The International Music Council (IMC) was founded in 1949 by UNESCO and the Forum was combined with a celebration of its 70th Anniversary. I represented IAML together with Stanisław Hrabia, IAML’s President and Klaus Keil, Director of the RISM Central Editorial Office. We enjoyed inspirational lectures, panel discussions, poster presentations, an exhibition, several concerts … and cocktails. As always, networking was an important part of the meeting.
The 2019 conference of IAML Germany is taking place this week in Augsburg. Around 150 partipants from Germany, Austria, and Switzerland are gathering at the campus of the Universität Augsburg. The conference includes presentations about Augsburg‘s rich musical history and current topics in music librarianship, with reports from IAML Germany’s sections on education, public libraries, music schools, AV materials, and radio and orchestra libraries. Library visits, workshops, concerts, and a tour through an exhibit called “Mozart’s Fashion Worlds” round off the program.
