Dai Griffiths (Arts) has been appointed a Fellow of the Mannes Institute for 2008, held at the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, NY, June 15-18.

'The Mannes Institute for Advanced Studies in Music Theory is an exclusive musical think-tank dedicated to communal exploration at the highest level of inquiry. It offers distinguished professional music scholars from around the world a unique opportunity to gather together in an intensive collegial setting outside of the conventional conference format to teach, challenge, and learn from each other in a sustained and interactive way. The Mannes Institute has achieved international recognition as a preeminent vehicle for synergy and collaboration in the domain of music scholarship.

This year's Institute explores the dynamic fields of jazz and popular music in depth from a variety of theoretical, analytical, and historical perspectives. An outstanding faculty of experts will conduct a series of high-level participatory workshops limited to fifteen scholars each, with a number of special plenary presentations. The total membership is forty-five colleagues constituting the Fellows of the 2008 Mannes Institute.’

Dai is contributing to two workshops: rock music of the 1960s, and pitch-based models of jazz analysis. Further information can be found at the Institute’s website: http://www.mannes.edu/mi.
