ICMuC 2018: International Chamber Music Conference 2018 - Porto

The aim of this Conference is to stimulate discussion and reflection on Chamber music.

Escola Superior de Música e Artes do Espetáculo - Politécnico do Porto

Porto, Portugal, March 21, 2018


Educationally, chamber music is a curricular unit which is widely spread in every level of music education, but with a surprisingly scarce body of research. We want to develop a broader view on chamber music, gaining insight on aspects such as creating the ensembles, group dynamics and leadership, assessment and repertoire, as well as composition practices for chamber music or the development of innovative teaching methods, programming, among others.
