Frank Horvat will be giving a presentation at FORUM 2016 – presented by the Canadian New Music Network in collaboration with the School of Music at the University of Ottawa, the School for Studies in Art and Culture at Carleton University and the National Arts Centre Orchestra.
Greek philosopher Plato stressed the centrality of music to politics. He saw music as an essential component of society because it contributed to both individual and societal balance and harmony. As part of the new music community, we are in a unique position to elevate issues relevant to our times. How can we collaborate and share ideas to amplify our passions and music, and truly be musicians that facilitate change? Join Frank Horvat, composer, pianist, and activist musician as he leads the discussion with attendees – Music as a Catalyst to Bring About Social Change: Going beyond the fundraising concert.
