‘About Music’ Lecture Series

Each week of semester, our public lecture series ‘About Music’ features a new angle on the endlessly fascinating phenomenon of human musicality. Designed as a showcase for SCM researchers and a venue for research visitors, this series is held in conjunction with the Alfred Hook Lectures (one per semester) and the Musicology Colloquium Series (currently held 4pm Wednesdays, several times per semester).

Venue: Recital Hall West, Sydney Conservatorium of Music, Macquarie St, Sydney
Free entry, no bookings required. Complimentary refreshments after the lecture.
