Dear Colleagues,

The Croatian Association of Music Theorists was founded in Zagreb on 1 March 1997. Today the HDGT has more than 300 members who teach music theory and music history at specialized music schools from elementary to higher educational levels, at general education institutions, or promote music theory and practice in different ways. The HDGT strives to promote music theory, advance the teaching of music theory and the art of music, and participate in all kinds of pedagogical activities relating to music theory.

We wish to celebrate our important anniversary by bringing together relevant experts from different parts of the world for discussions and an exchange of ideas related to our core activity: teaching music theory. Our main goal is meeting new friends along with the old ones, promoting our discipline based on the harmony of tradition and contemporaneity, inclusion, multiculturality, tolerance and mutual understanding. We are honored to announce our plenary speakers, Thomas Christensen, Avalon Foundation Professor of Music at the University of Chicago, and Steven G. Laitz, Professor and Chair of the Music Theory & Analysis Department at the Juilliard School, New York.

Scholars from across the discipline are cordially invited to join us at the University of Zagreb Academy of Music on 19 and 20 November 2022. We are looking forward to reading your contributions and meeting you at our conference, in person or virtually!
