Event Details

The Melbourne Conservatorium of Music is proud to present a symposium to honour the centenary of the death of the firebrand and iconoclast GWL Marshall-Hall, the first Professor of Music at the University of Melbourne. 

The afternoon will open with a presentation by Tony Moore, cultural historian at Monash University and author of Dancing With Empty Pockets: Australia’s Bohemians Since 1860 (2012) followed by a performance by Lyric Opera of Melbourne artists of excerpts from Stella and readings from Marshall-Hall’s letters. A reception will close the symposium as the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music’s Lyrebird Press launches its new book, Passions of a Mighty Heart: Selected letters of G.W.L. Marshall-Hall, edited by Suzanne Robinson.
