Workshop #4 / Sat, 11.30am
Spare Change in a Stradivarius Case: Questioning the Purpose of Musical Endeavor in Light of Jesus' Ministry to the Oppressed
Joan Van Dessel
The primary objective of this workshop is to offer leading questions that encourage musicians to explore how they might further integrate practical aspects of their faith with their artistic interests. Discussion includes intersections between Biblical calling and musicianship that have been historically understated or ignored. Key topics include: elitism in both classical and popular music media, the Biblical narrative that requires our connection to the oppressed, and the concept of community as it relates to music and our faith.
