Another Successful Annual MeetingThree hundred and seventy-five MAC attendees braved capricious Midwestern weather and descended on Kansas City, Mo., for The Syncopations of History, April 24-26. Members were treated to a delightful plenary session with speaker Chuck Haddix of the Marr Sound Archive, who detailed how he used archival collections to correct accepted errors in existing scholarship of jazz legend and KC native Charlie Parker.

Read more about the meeting in the July newsletter, and please post and view slides from the sessions in the MAC Forums!
