About This Event

  • Event Type:Classes

Ethno-music-what?: Across the globe, music has the power to transform people. From ritual and religious ceremonies to Friday night jam sessions, music crosses both real – and imaginary – borders and boundaries. Ethnomusicology is the study of music and world cultures, and it’s everywhere. Join Katie Palmer, curator of education at the Musical Instrument Museum, to learn more about MIM, challenge some preconceived notions about music, and think critically about the ways that music transcends and transforms. This session will focus on sounds from Asia. Please be prepared to recall your personal experiences with music – from both near and far.
