The exhibition was held from 28 March to 2 April 2000, in conjunction with an international colloquium entitled "Berlioz, Past, Present, Future" held at Smith College, Northampton, Massachusetts, from 31 March to 2 April 2003. The colloquium was the first in a series of such academic conferences organised by the Comité International Hector Berlioz to honour Berlioz on the 200th anniversary of his birth. Other colloquia were held in Bayreuth in 2001, in London in 2002 and in Paris in 2003. The papers presented at the Smith College colloquium were later published as a book, Berlioz, Past, Present, Future (Rochester University Press, 2003), edited by Professor Peter Bloom who was also the main organiser of the conference.
