- Lecture/Discussion: 3
Public musicology is committed to using music as a tool to provide liberal, critical, and ethical values through musical education and engagement. The mission of the course is to provide students with the skills to work in or manage educational and outreach programs that engage with music from different genres and levels of expertise. The course will engage with public musicology in musics that are historical, contemporary, classical, popular, or ethnic. Part of the course includes the preparation of a lecture for a public presentation at one of the arts organizations in our community, e.g.: KW symphony, WLU ensembles, community orchestras/bands/choirs, Nota Bene, Numus, Perimeter Institute, or even the Princess, Jane Bond, Maxwells, and the Starlight.
