Second International Festival on Minimalist Music

There are a few sessions dedicated to discussing Glass including:
– Metamorphic Meanings? Exploring Glass’s Intertextual Soundtracks
Tristian Evans (Bangor University, Wales, UK) 
-Images of Lincoln: Glass’s Minimalist Contribution to 
American Historical Memory of the Civil War

Thomas J. Kernan (University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music)
-Session 5 (3:00-4:00) – Philip Glass and Arvo Pärt
 “Disorientation and Loss as a Response to Arvo Pärt’s festina lente”
David Dies

Curiously though, no Glass pieces on the performance schedule. No matter, sounds like an interesting conference.
