Seminar for young & mid-career practitioners: Classical Futures
Classical Futures - New frontiers for music and audience' is a seminar presented by Music Australia in association with Vivid Ideas and the Australian Music Centre. Aimed at young and mid-career music practitioners, the event will take place at Erskineville Town Hall on 5 June 2015 at 4pm. A panel of leading practitioners and producers will explore where our artform is heading, key trends, and what future audiences can expect. What will classical and art music look like 10 or 20 years from now? Is the future as much outside as inside the concert hall? As intimate and socially engaged as impressively large-scale? Embraced by many people of all ages, or the preserve of a few?
From inventive approaches to repertoire, performance and engagement, to examples of great practice, the seminar will investigate opportunities, realities, and energising possibilities for classical and art music in Sydney and beyond, as well as some practical strategies to inform sector development, practice and policy.
