  • AIRS 6th Annual Meeting.  The AIRS 6th Annual Meeting (2015) will  take place in Nashville, Tennessee  (Music City, USA ☺) July 30-31, prior to the biennial meeting of the Society for Music Perception and Cognition (SMPC) co-convened by Reyna Gordon and Elisabeth Dykens).  Abstracts for the AIRS Symposium will be requested by the end of February and a template will be provided for this as well as for interest in performing at the AIRS concert which will take place the evening of July 31.
     

    Dr. Ron Eavy, who is the chair of Vanderbilt's Department of Otolaryngology and director of the Bill Wilkerson Center for Otolaryngology and Hearing and Speech Sciences, has kindly agreed to serve as a liaison  between the SMPC local organizing committee and AIRS.  AIRS is looking forward to connecting with members of the renowned Voice Center and AIRS attendees.  The  dates July 31 and the morning of August 1 there will be some events for students, and the AIRS Policy and Planning Committee will be taking place on the evening of July 30. The SMPC conference itself will run from  August  1st, 1 pm to noon August 5. 

    Those attending the AIRS meeting will have the opportunity to present their research at SMPC by submitting abstracts through the SMPC website; deadline for submission has been extended to Feb. 13 at 11pm CDT.  Tentatively, please pencil in the dates July 30 and 31 on your calendar. The SMPC conference itself will run from July 31st 1 pm to noon August 5th. Those attending the AIRS meeting will have the opportunity to present their research at SMPC (by submitting abstracts through the usual SMPC channels), and AIRS will also be working with Jessica Grahn, the SMPC conference program organizer, to determine the possibility of including an AIRS event within the SMPC program itself (e.g., a special poster session on singing, a symposium, or singing performance event). 

    Your thoughts and suggestion will be welcome as we move forward. Both the music and health industries are prominent in Nashville, and the Vanderbilt University community will also add a valuable context to this SMPC meeting, already plenty wonderful by itself (recall the last Ryerson meeting of SMPC!).

  • AIRS Researcher (sub-theme 2.2)  Dr. Karen Jensen, in the Desautels Faculty of Music at the University of Manitoba has had two papers just accepted by the Journal of Voice.  These papers focus on the significance and pedagogical application of the vocal breakthrough.  One paper discusses conditions and stages, while the other examines attentional phenomena.  The  papers acknowledge the seminal role of AIRS. Through AIRS,  Karen and Dr. Jane Ginsborg (Royal Northern College of Music, UK) have developed a fruitful collaboration. Jane visited Karen last year, and Karen will be presenting a talk and seminars at RNCM in March. Thanks go to Marcel A. Desautels for research support, and to the University of Manitoba, and RNCM for travel support.
