The Singing Network is the starting point for creating and building a MUN-provincial-national-international network of individuals and organizations interested in singing and song: scholars, performing artists, educators, students, as well as professional and community-based musicians organizations and associations. The network generates and produces a series of voice-singing-choral events ranging from workshops, seminars, master-classes, performances, dialogues, the formation of new ensembles, and a biennial International Symposium on Singing and Song.
International Symposium on Singing and Song II
June 27-29, 2018
The Singing Network at Memorial University is hosting its second international gathering of scholars, educators, performers, community organizations… all interested in singing and song! Presentations and performances will be diverse, representing current research and practices relating to health and well-being, choral and vocal pedagogy, formal and informal education, musicology, social justice, and holistic lifestyles. With a wide variety of both traditional and imaginative presentation formats, as well as cameo performances throughout the event, there is something for everyone!
Our 2018 Keynote Presenters are:
Stephen Clift (UK), Research Director of the Sidney De Haan Research Centre for Arts and Health
Aida Swenson (Indonesia), founder/conductor of the Indonesian Children & Youth Choirs Cordana
Wendy Nielsen (Canada), soprano and voice pedagogue
