« At the University of Michigan School of Music, Theatre & Dance; co-hosted by the Westfield Center for Historical Keyboard Studies/Cornell Center for Historical Keyboards in collaboration with SphinxConnect.
Our communities face crises of diversity and belonging, of racial violence, and sexual and gender harassment as the old fear of difference takes on disturbing new forms. The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated these tensions and complicated our responses; at the same time, it has ushered in a new paradigm of virtual connection and digital presence that enables an unprecedented degree of inclusivity. Schools of music, concert halls, and cultural institutions around the world are questioning long histories of exclusion, and artists are newly empowered to recover and amplify the voices of historically marginalized groups.
The historical diversity of the keyboard’s many interfaces—ranging across the organ, clavichord, harpsichord, carillon, piano, and their electronic descendants—offers multiple pathways to explore the unsung stories of musical artists who have been ignored or discounted. The Westfield Center, in partnership with the Cornell Center for Historical Keyboards, the Sphinx Organization, and the University of Michigan School of Music, Theatre & Dance, is convening an in-person and online dialogue among keyboard scholars, performers, and instrument makers to expand and redefine the history of what it means to #LookLikeAKeyboardist. »
