The Future of Music: Seeking New Modes of Making Music and New Models of Outreach

Tuesday, February 18, 2020 - 12:00pm

Speaker(s): 
Laurent Bayle, Director of the Philharmonie de Paris

In this public lecture, Laurent Bayle, Director of the Philharmonie de Paris, will discuss future potentialities of music, both through the innovation of new modes of its making and the elaboration of new models of outreach. He will speak about various initiatives, including the DEMOS program, targeting disadvantaged youth.

A light lunch will be served.

This public lecture is part of Arts and Cultural Citizenship, an initiative originating from Romance Studies at Duke, and supported by the French Cultural Services through the Center for French and Francophone Studies, the Forum for Scholars and Publics, the Franklin Humanities Institute, the Dean of the Humanities and the Department of Music. The initiative aims to establish an ambitious cultural exchange program through a broad network of partnerships with world-class cultural institutions.

A 2020-2021 Bass Connections project – Fostering Social Integration of Displaced Populations through the Performing Arts – has also grown out of this initiative and is recruiting students through February 14 at 5:00 p.m.
