Recovering the music and culture of an Asian nation's colonial past

Posted by: Dartmouth College Office of Public Affairs

An international and interdisciplinary symposium at Dartmouth College April 30 through May 2 will celebrate the unique music and culture that flowered in the Philippine Islands in the late stages of its colonial rule by Spain.

"Encuentro Filipino: Rediscovering a Hispanic Nation: The Fine and Performing Arts in the Philippine Islands Before The Invasion of 1898" will feature five leading scholars of 19th-century Filipino music and the Fine Arts, as well as performances by Hopkins Center for the Arts pianist-in-residence Sally Pinkas and one by one of the Philippines' leading youth ensembles, the Loboc Children's Choir. All events are free and open to the public.
