“KEYBOARD MUSIC AND COLONIAL PHILADELPHIA”
JOINT CONFERENCE AT TEMPLE UNIVERSITYPHILADELPHIA--MARCH 12-14, 2009
Philadelphia has changed a bit from this 18th-century image--but it is still home to many of America’s most treasured historic sites. Temple University’s Boyer College of Music and Dance will be our host as we gather to hear papers and performances in a variety of on-campus as well as historic settings.
Ed Mauger, well loved for his "Philadelphia on Foot," adventures, will lead custom historical tours on Thursday afternoon (3 pm: "Colonial High Life") and Sunday morning (10 am: "Ben Franklin's Musical Philadelphia"). Advance and last-minute sign-ups are available. Cost is $15 per person/per tour.
As stated on the site:"The undersigned wants to strongly request the Flemish Minister of Culture in Belgium, Mr. Bert Anciaux, to realize the world-wide importance of baroque orchestra La Petite Bande.
This orchestra is one of the most refreshing and renewing ensembles in its field. For over 37 years, it has been a true icon in the musical world, inspiring many other baroque musicians all over the world. Belgium should be proud to have this orchestra in its residence. When this orchestra would be forced to stop existing from of a lack in governmental subventions, this would be very harmful for Belgium's image in the world. It would be unthinkable for the musical world and it would mean an incredible loss for the international ànd the national cultural life.
The undersigned trusts that the Minister will take a critical look to the recommendations of the 'Beoordelingscommissie Kunsten en Erfgoed' and reconsiders their advice. " (The site's claims have been confirmed with La Petite Bande organization.)
