Public

The Royal Musical Association, City University London and the Guildhall School of Music & Drama present:

Performing Musicology

with Keynote Speaker John Rink

A Study Day for Research Students

Over the past twenty years scholars have increasingly engaged in collaborations with performers as the traditional emphasis on music as embodied in the score has been fundamentally challenged by an understanding of music as sound, as event and as communicative act. These collaborations have often proved fruitful, yet a genuine synthesis of musicology and performance is still a comparatively rare phenomenon and representatives of both fields generally continue to conduct their professional careers on 'home territory'. There is still immense scope for fusion of musicology and performance, and this Study Day aims to explore how a more fully integrated approach may become an innate part of our daily scholarly and creative activity.
