This conference explored issues pertaining to the study of conducting from a range of perspectives by bringing together research across a variety of disciplines including musicology, ethnomusicology, music education, philosophy, psychology, anthropology and sociology as well as from practitioners. The tripartite aims of the conference engaged researchers and practitioners in productive dialogue, promoting practice as research, and raising awareness of the state of research in the field of conducting.
This conference was organised by the Oxford Conducting Institute – the committee members included myself (Founder and Director of OCI), Dr Cayenna Ponchione-Bailey (OCI Director of Research), Prof. Fiona Palmer (Maynooth Univeristy), and Prof. Chris Younghoon Kim (Cornell University).
