Sound Heritage Sydney : Making Music in Historic Places
- Date: Tuesday, 28 March 2017, 10am
- Venue: Elizabeth Bay House — 7 Onslow Avenue, Elizabeth Bay, NSW
Have you ever wondered about how music was made in the Australian homes of the past? What music was popular, who played it and how was it played? Having pondered these questions for some time, Sydney Living Museums and the Sydney Conservatorium of Music have invited a range of experts from across Australia, the UK, and New Zealand to participate in a symposium at Elizabeth Bay House to explore the history of music making in the Australian home and its international contexts. Sound Heritage Sydney will bring together musicians, scholars and heritage practitioners to discuss what and how music was played in historic houses and at other historic sites. The forum is also interested in uncovering innovative ways music can be used to reveal new narratives in historic properties for contemporary visitors.
Performers: Ian Blake, Sandra France, Jennifer Gall
