About Music Education: A Conservatorium High School for the 21st Century
Monday 20 March 2017
Recital Hall West
Level 1, Sydney Conservatorium of Music Sydney NSW
Relieving Principal of Conservatorium High School, Ian Barker, has temporarily taken over the reins from Dr Robert Curry. With a musical background that spans not just the classical music tradition that the Con High is so well known for, but also folk, popular and more improvised musics, Barker brings to the institution a program that not only maintains excellence but will also develop a more rounded musician, ready for whatever 21st Century music careers may look like. In this talk, Ian Barker reveals where he will protect tradition, where he will introduce change, and why.
Join us for refreshments and to continue the conversation afterwards.
