Heavenly Acts III – Musical and linguistic explorations in faith settings: An International Symposium
On November 25 and 26, Dr. Michael Frishkopf, Director of the Canadian Centre for Ethnomusicology (CCE), Research Fellow of folkwaysAlive!, and Adjunct Professor in Religious Studies, together with his Andrey Rosowsky at University of Sheffield will be hosting Heavenly Acts III in the Senate Chamber of the Old Arts Building on North Campus. Over the two days, the work of an international and interdisciplinary network of scholars, practitioners and performers will explore meaning through the multidimensional world of religious performance, with a focus on the complex relationships between faith, language, performance and music. Jeff Robert’s PAN ensemble will provide a musical offering Friday night, and our world music ensembles will perform Saturday night.
