Have you ever wondered how a jazz piece is held together? About the role music can play in social justice, patriotic fervour, or trauma survival? About the relation between high-level musical performance and rehabilitation? Why the action of that last opera production you saw seemed so incomprehensible?
Find the answer to these questions at Sound Knowledge, a new 6-part lecture series by leading members of the Faculty of Music. (Pictured: Aiyun Huang, Associate Professor Percussion)
Sound Knowledge is a collaboration between the Faculty of Music and the School of Continuing Studies.
