I’ll be making two trips in the next two weeks.
Then, on May 13, I’ll be taking part in a formal (black tie!) debate at Cambridge University in England: “This house believes that classical music is irrelevant to today’s youth.” This will be presented by the Cambridge Union Society, which has been debating since 1815. I’ve been asked to join the affirmative side (though as I hope you can imagine, I think the question deserves more than just a yes or no answer).
And I expect to stay a few days after the debate, to see people/go to concerts in London. Seems like I’ll be meeting people from Guildhall, one of the UK’s major music schools. But that’s just a start. Anyone have ideas for things to do, people to see? Don’t hesitate to propose yourself. My time may be limited, but I’d like to cast my net wide, if I can.
The debate — here for all the information available so far — will be streamed live. I’ll share details once I have them.
I’m looking forward to all of this!
