The annual meetings of the American Musicological Society (AMS), Society for Music Theory (SMT), and Society for Ethnomusicology (SEM) are great places to share new research and keep current with scholarship. They’re also great opportunities to reconnect with former students, colleagues, and old friends. Below are Iowa alums Kimberly Beck, Joseph Matson and Michael Accino at the annual meeting of the American Musicological Society in Pittsburgh in November.
