About the event
Only in the last thirty years have feminist musicologists explored Western music in relation to cultural concepts of gender and sexuality. The first part of this lecture recital is a brief overview of LGBTQ terminology, with tips on being an Ally to the LGBTQ community. The second part introduces concepts of feminist musicology through a feminist analysis of three works for piano by LGBTQ composers. This presentation is given by senior Piano Performance major Garrett Snedeker, in conjunction with his Honors Thesis.
