380A: 21CM Topics:The Ethics of Performance

In this course, we will grapple with music's power and our social responsibilities as musicians. We will question what and how we choose to perform, and what the ramifications of those choices might be. How do we handle performing music with which we have ideological objections? We will also explore issues of access to music education in underprivileged school districts, and how some programs are making a difference. We will develop strategies to become powerful advocates for threatened music and fine arts programs.
