Can Art Mediate Conflict? (Panel)

Scholars and composers join in conversation about the ways in which music can mediate conflict and be a source of uplift. Participants including John Browne of The Events, Byron Au Yong of Stuck Elevator (from Festival 2013), and Derek Goldman, Artistic Director of the Davis Performing Arts Center and Professor of Theater and Performance Studies at Georgetown University, will reflect on the communal possibilities of choral music, on the role of music in the play The Events, and on their own approach to negotiating hope and humanity through art.
