As the saying goes, “talking about music is like dancing about architecture.” Using this line as a guiding principle, the Music roundtable will dance about some inherent questions surrounding the practice of decorating the air with pitched and rhythmic vibrations. Our goal is to expand access to conversations about music by opening it up to new perspectives and removing some of the barriers that are created by dichotomies such as musician and non-musician, craftsperson and artist, etc.
