This time we met in a smaller space where we were all sitting much closer together and somehow inspired a sense of urgency to the issues we dove into.
Erwin Roebroeks’ talk on Opera and Gender and Society was full of fun facts and interesting observations. Food for thought.
And then Hannah Bosma came up with even more discussion material by listing books and articles on Gender in Music that we could all sink our teeth into.
The issues were hot, the questions technical and emotional. I functioned more as discussion leader/guider this time and tried to find ways to give space for everyone’s voices.
