Fifteen cooperating societies engaged in musical research and the teaching of music in U.S. and Canadian colleges and universities will hold a joint meeting from November 1 to 5, 2000, in Toronto, Canada. Entitled Toronto 2000: Musical Intersections, the conference will bring together the

American Musical Instrument Society
American Musicological Society
Association for Technology in Music Instruction
Canadian Society of Music Libraries, Archives, & Documentation Centres
Canadian Society for Traditional Music
Canadian University Music Society
The College Music Society
Historic Brass Society
International Association for the Study of Popular Music (Canadian & U.S. chapters)
Lyrica Society for Word-Music Relationships
Society for American Music (formerly the Sonneck Society for American Music)
Society for Ethnomusicology
Society for Music Perception and Cognition
Society for Music Theory

Each society will offer its own independent program, selected by its own procedures, with its sessions open to all registrants. The "intersections" of the conference title will also occur in a dozen separate joint sessions, set by the joint steering committee. Further joint sessions are being planned by the program chairs of individual societies as part of their independent programs.

The mega-meeting partially represents the expansiveness and variety of the scholarly study of music at the end of this century. With the performing and composing members of CMS and CUMS, it also represents the diverse curricular areas in college and university music programs today. As "intersections" implies multiple avenues and many crossroads, the joint sessions and independent programs together should offer colleagues and students disciplinary contexts for the different perspectives and the common, underlying issues that will shape the field in the next century.
