Online Symposium: Music, Migration and Mobility - The Legacy of Migrant Musicians from Nazi Europe in Britain

  • Thu 3 Dec 2020
  • 10:00AM

Together with the Royal College of Music, we are co-hosting the opening symposium of their practice-led, international and multidisciplinary research project ‘Music, Migration and Mobility’, which aims to gain new knowledge about the legacy of musicians who emigrated to Britain from Germany and Austria in the 1930s, mostly because of persecution by the Nazi regime.

The research team will outline its approach of studying and foregrounding the mobility of these musicians and their importance for British culture during and after WW2, hoping to enter into fruitful conversations with guests and project partners.

To join the online event, please register for tickets.
