Classical Music at the Cultural Crossroads Artist Panel Discussion
Join a panel of musicians and composers as they ask, “How can we redefine ‘classical’ music to reflect the diversity that it encompasses?”
They’ll explore the trend of composers drawing from traditions from around the world and how contemporary “classical” music is no longer only a western European art. The panel will also discuss the notion that all music (including favorite historical masterworks) was once considered new music. Panelists include composers Stephanie Webster whose work will be featured at the Festival with Dana Lawton Dances; Sascha Jacobson of the Musical Art Quintet, who will perform in collaboration with Compagnie Surya B from France; and Charlton Lee of the Del Sol Quartet who will perform on Friday June 3.
This panel in the Cowell lobby is hosted by Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture as part of the San Francisco International Arts Festival, which runs from May 19 – June 5 exclusively at FMCAC. The Festival features over 100 performances by 50 different ensembles, as well as an expansive arts exhibition celebrating 100 years of the Dada Movement.
