Dialogue | Music in times of a pandemic

 Registration is closed for this event
The first event in the Dialogues on the time of Covid-19 Spring series, will be looking at the impact the pandemic has had on music.


These dialogues will be delivered remotely via Zoom

Tuesday 9th of February 
8:15pm - 9:45pm

The experience of music has been deeply affected by the pandemic. Musicians, whose life and soul go into performing music, have been forced to stay at home or play in empty hall. Music lovers have been deprived of their cultural nourishment, choir singers of an important part of their lives. Yet, there have also been creative new ways of performing and enjoying music, which may have influence beyond the pandemic. This throws up fundamental questions of listening, so central to music as well as psychoanalysis. 

The conductor Mark Wigglesworth, author of “The Silent Musician: Why Conducting Matters”, will be in dialogue with the psychoanalyst Roger Kennedy, author of “The Power of Music: Psychoanalytic Explorations” and other books. The event will be chaired by the psychoanalyst and musician Anthea Gomez.

These dialogues will be held live on Zoom and will also be made available the following day for  24 hours to all registered participants. This is to allow for international attendees to enjoy the event at a more appropriate time in their time zone. After this, the recording will no longer be available.
