The music department’s spring postgraduate forum was held on Thursday 2nd March. We had a packed day with a really wide range of topics covered, issues touched on, and genres explored. Click for full report and timetable.
Thanks for this James - interesting ;)
You might be interested to know that my opera, Returns - which formed part of the submission for my PhD in this music department (just completed) features a role written for a fantastic trans performer, CN Lester. The part is a mezzo role: the character in the play on which the opera is based was male, although in the opera the gender is left undetermined. This is an issue to which we’ll probably return in the R and D for the opera’s production which is about to start. Happy to send a pdf score if you’re interested.
