RSVP: https://ucla.zoom.us/meeting/register/tJMqf-ugqjwpH9eVsJuQ2K6FxZbhM6QtGJF8

Across time and place, the arts have been heralded as a savior of all sorts; from promises of class mobility through creative freedom, to neocolonialist narratives about rescuing “troubled” youth, to the ability to turn passion into productive labor. Through historic and contemporary case studies, this panel explores how musical creativity and philanthropy have been called upon to invite upward mobility since the 19th century.

This is the first event in the Music Performance Studies Today series. Considering musics from a variety of traditions, this symposium aims to bring visibility to the field of music performance studies and generate scholarly momentum in its realm at UCLA.
