Together with the Royal College of Music, the Austrian Cultural Forum in London is 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 here.
Presentations from all team members and two distinguished guest speakers will be complemented with a performance by Ensemble Émigré and students from the Royal College of Music. The event will take place on Zoom.
The event takes place on December 3 from 10am to 4pm.
