Keynote Speaker: Prof. Daniel Leech-Wilkinson (King’s College, London)
Submission deadline: Friday, 15 February 2019
The profession of the classical music performer has been evolving in different ways over the last few decades. In particular, the idea of a genre-specific performer is being gradually replaced by the notion of a “portfolio musician”. Not only are more and more classical performers engaging with other genres of music and collaborating with artists from other arts (such as dance and theatre), they are also undertaking scholarly research and becoming increasingly involved in the composition of music. The lines, then, that have traditionally existed between the genres that musicians engage with (such as classical, jazz, or popular) and the identities that they assume when doing so (scholar, performer, or composer) are now considerably blurred.
Including a keynote presentation by Professor Daniel Leech-Wilkinson, musical performances and a round-table discussion, this study day aims to bring together practitioners, scholars and artist-researchers to explore the following questions (to which proposals need not be strictly limited):
Proposals for individual papers and lecture-recitals (20 minutes + 10 minutes for discussion), and poster presentations are invited. Contributions from postgraduate students are particularly encouraged.
Please submit an abstract of no more than 250 words and a short biography (c. 150 words) to Adam Behan as an email attachment (firstname.lastname@example.org). Please indicate if your abstract is for a paper presentation, lecture-recital or a poster, as well as your AV requirements.
Notification of acceptance will be sent by Monday, 4 March 2019.
The study day will be free for members of the RMA and the Faculty of Music, University of Cambridge. There will be a fee of £10 for nonmembers.
Organising committee: Adam Behan (PhD candidate, University of Cambridge) David Cotter (PhD candidate, University of Cambridge) Pierre Riley (PhD candidate, University of Cambridge) Dr Mine Doğantan-‐Dack (University of Cambridge)
