The College Music Symposium: Journal of the College Music Society is an international peer-reviewed journal that publishes research, comprehensive review articles, forum essays, and individual reviews, including those of books, film/video, audio, technologies and online resources, and select performances and lectures. The Symposium, which was first issued in 1961, was established with a unique purpose not duplicated elsewhere: it was a “different sort of scholarly journal…a provocative publication that…cut across lines of specialization” (McCorkle Symposium 1961). The present journal maintains this comprehensive vision, with a modern bent, through issuing publications that deal with a variety of topics relating to the wide-ranging academic disciplines and interests of College Music Society members.
