ALTA Conference Wayfinders
If you want to know you'll have a friendly face waiting for you in Rochester, or if you want to be a first-timer's reliable conference guide, join the ALTA Conference Wayfinders! Our conference is growing, and as we see attendance increase, we know you want ALTA42 to be as warm, welcoming, and intimate an experience as we do. Fill out this form by October 21, 2019, and we'll pair up translators coming to the conference for the first time with those who know it best.
Rochester Early Music Festival
The Rochester Early Music Festival is seeking translators with whom to collaborate for a live concert featuring chamber choir Musica Spei. Musical selections will be presented as original poetic text, sung text, and in new translation. They invite ALTA translators to contribute translations of texts in some of the following languages selected from Musica Spei's repertoire: Medieval French, Medieval Latin, German, Old Church Slavonic, Georgian, Swedish, Dutch/Flemish, and Polish. If you are interested in being a part of this exciting project, please sign up here before June 17, 2019.

If you are interested in volunteering at ALTA42, watch this space!
