Join us for an evening of music, food and conversation with Dr Shirley J. Thompson
When? 17 October 2018 18:00 – 19:30
Where? Rosebowl, Lecture Theatre B
The art of classical music is frequently described as deriving from purely, European origins. However, there may be more to this story than is often acknowledged. Dr Shirley J Thompson will explore the role of the African in classical music’s foundation, genesis and development. The theme of the Lecture will be Unearthing Submerged Narratives in Classical Music Histography and Education: Towards an Inclusive Art Form and its Teachings
The University’s Race Equality Forum is hosting the event with networking and refreshments from 5.30pm. The lecture will begin at 6pm with music, conversation and Q&A, closing at 7.30pm.
