Classical music conference at King’s College, London

The first of several SPARC conference outings today, to London for the ‘Classical Music as Contemporary Socio-Cultural Practice’ conference at King’s College, London.  Stephanie and Katy presented the ‘lapsed participants’ strand of our Cultural Value project, and found interesting connections with Anna Bull’s work on conductor style and influence in youth music ensembles, and Stephen Cottrell’s on the rise of ‘terrible’ orchestras.  Conference details and abstracts here: KCL conference programme, May 2014
