About this Event


“Music as Social Change: A Reckoning” November 10 at 7:00pm

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.

This is the first event in our new “Experience Longy” series.

Longy is grateful to our event co-sponsor: Cary Memorial Library, Lexington.
