Celebrating the 200th anniversary of the publication of _Waverley_, the Lyrica Society is sponsoring a session on the interconnection between the works of Sir Walter Scott and music. And the connection is great. Scott's works were the basis for countless operas and musical theatre pieces, as well as texts for many songs.

We invite 250-350 word proposals by March 1st, 2013 on any aspect of Scott and music. Send them to, and put "Scott MLA 2014" in the subject line.
