This two-day symposium will bring together interdisciplinary scholars and interpreters of music in rethinking how musical programs of the past might be meaningfully reimagined in the present. Contributors are invited to consider how contemporary scholarship offers new possibilities for staging musical concerts in ways that innovatively weave together our musical past with our musical present. Efforts to decolonize music programs, recuperate Indigenous song practices, critique canon formation, and engage with historically-inspired performance practices, are just a few approaches at play in this expansive arena of cultural work.
25 and 26 November 2022, Sydney Conservatorium of Music
Convenors: Christopher Coady, Amanda Harris, Neal Peres Da Costa, Toby Martin
