Music in the Home: A Virtual Symposium

2-5 June 2020

A virtual symposium held over four days (one panel per day, 12 noon-2pm BST), Music in the Home explores the different ways we engage or explore music in a domestic setting. Our first panel on Tuesday looks at historical evidence of music-making through manuscripts in the UK and Italy in the sixteenth to the nineteenth centuries. Wednesday’s panel focuses on the piano in the nineteenth century, and its crucial role in domestic music performance. On Thursday, the worlds of the professional and amateur musician are brought together in the neutral territory of the home. Finally, our last panel on Friday thinks about music in the home today, particularly in light of the current global crisis.

The symposium will be hosted on the Zoom platform, and there will be a Q&A session at the end of each panel.
