Event description

Description

The next annual meeting of the Society for Christian Scholarship in Music will be held February 8–10, 2018 on the campus of Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. The campus is just a 25-minute drive from Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU) in Wake Forest, NC.

The Southeastern Center for Faith and Culture will host the conference, which will include a keynote address, a feature concert, and many fine presentations. Additional sponsors for the conference include Duke Divinity School’s Duke Initiative in Theology and the Arts and the Virginia Tull Music and Arts Series.

This year’s keynote address will be delivered by Steven Guthrie, Professor of Theology at Belmont University. Dr. Guthrie writes on the intersection of music, theology, and contemporary culture and plans to address how music can assist in our current “aural crisis.”

The feature concert for the weekend will be presented by Chris Jacobson (FRCO) and the Duke University Evensong Singers. The program–entitled “Lighten Our Darkness”–includes J.S. Bach’s Cantata 22 as well as works by William Byrd, Benjamin Britten, William Walton, and John Rutter. The choir will be accompanied by orchestra and the historic pipe organ (renovated in 2016) at Wake Forest Baptist Church.

Full details will be posted to the website once they are available. We encourage you to book early and join us for what promises to be an exciting conference exploring music, theology, and culture.
