New Music Festival Musica - Femina Symposium and concerts

Tuesday, 07.01.2020 – Monday, 20.01.2020

MusicaFemina International Symposium will take place on 8-9 January 2020 in Budapest. Christine Fischer (PhD, Senior Research Associate, University of Applied Sciences and Arts, Department of Music, Lucerne) will be among the invited speakers.

MusicaFemina International Symposium is a forum for researchers, music professionals and local communities in Central and East Europe to explore relations of gender and musical practice in four interrelated programs. Gender and Creativity in Music Worlds is a two-day conference including lectures, panel discussions and roundtable discussions. The panels focus on the role of gender in music education, the relations between gender and music in the Central and East European region, and issues of gender within the music industry. At the roundtable discussions, performers, composers and managers will address issues of creativity from a gender perspective. For the first afternoon of the symposium, we invite experts from the Hungarian music world (composers, performers, journalists and music historians) to a series of roundtable discussions in order to talk about the issue of gender in the Hungarian music scene (entitled Hang-nem-váltás?/Keychange?). The discussions will be followed by a special edition of Ladyfest Budapest, an underground event, in Három Holló Café, with all-female bands from Germany, Poland and Hungary performing. The final event of the symposium will be the opening concert of the Transparent Sound New Music Festival, preceded by a brief discussion.



In addition to that the Asasello Quartet will give a concert at the Transparent Sound New Musica Festival on 12 January 2020 8 pm. in CEU - October Hall (1051 Budapest, Október 6. utca 7.) and on 13 January

The members of the Asasello Quartet studied in Basel, Switzerland. The third piece of the concert will be a composition by the Swiss composer, Michael Jarrel.
