Rehearsing Orchestral Innovation
The first MCICM symposium invites delegates from the professional and amateur music sector, classical music industry, music education, and academic and artistic research on musical performance and audience engagement to discuss the central theme of collaborative learning and experimenting. The main question is how combining academic and practice-based artistic research can 'open' and ‘extend’ the ritual of the symphony orchestra concert.
The two-day programme, consisting of panels, hands-on workshops, lectures and performances, focuses on innovation through collaborations between professional practice, arts education and research. It takes the music rehearsal as a starting point for rethinking the ritual of orchestral performance. Rehearsing music mobilizes existing knowledge and expertise yet aims at new qualities in a performance. We will explore and debate the societal role of classical music and its relevance; new ways in which audiences can participate in and value classical music concerts; and the symphony orchestra as an ‘archive’ that enables (re)discovering musical cultures of the past.
