Description


Jesus College, Oxford,
will be pleased to welcome you to the 10th Moisa Meeting in July 2017 – a historic conference that will mark the tenth anniversary since the foundation of MOISA, the International Society for the Study of Greek and Roman Music and its Cultural Heritage (http://moisasociety.org/)

To celebrate this milestone appropriately, this conference will focus on one of the most controversial and discussed phenomena in ancient Greek musical history: the radical innovations of the so-called ‘New Music’.



This registration page is for all standard delegates and full-time student delegates.

1. Please choose the appropriate delegate rate.

2. If you and your guests would like to attend the Conference Gala Dinner and drinks reception, please add the relevant items to your basket.

3. A separate reservation is required to book a place for the concert of Ancient Greek music that will take place at the Ashmolean museum on July 28th, 7pm. Thanks to the generous support of the John Fell Fund, the concert will be free of charge but pre-registration is required via the following page, which will be live in the coming weeks: https://moisaconcert2017oxford.eventbrite.co.uk
