Music as Social Change: A Reckoning
Please RSVP to receive instructions on how to join this virtual event. Click here to register.
This panel discussion, led by Longy Assistant Dean of Artistic and Social Change Dr. Ian Saunders, will explore the reckoning of racism and misogyny within classical music dominated by dead white males.
Our panelists include: Longy’s Chair of Composition, Dr. Alexandra Du Bois, founder and director of Quinteto Latino, Armando Castellano, and renowned opera singer, Lauren Michelle. They will share the intersection of their lived experience and classical music’s reckoning and what must come next for conservatories to be change agents.
Join us for our upcoming donor-exclusive event, “Their Own Words,” featuring conversations with socially engaged musicians who are making themselves heard and making a difference in the world.
