OCIICSC 2020 was postponed until 2021 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.The organising committee had hoped to host an in-person or hybrid event this coming June, but with the current global circumstances it was decided to hold the entire conference online to facilitate participation. An in-person/hybrid conference is currently being planned for 2022.
About the conference
OCIICSC 2021 is the fourth conference designed to bring together researchers and practitioners in order to generate interdisciplinary dialogue about, raise awareness of, and generate further development in the field of conducting studies. As the three previous conferences have shown, the practice of instrumental and vocal conducting encompasses vastly more than its physical manifestation suggests. The Conference continues to explore conducting’s many facets through a range of disciplines including musicology, ethnomusicology, music education, philosophy, psychology, anthropology, and sociology. Previous Keynote speakers have included: Sian Edwards, William Christie, Odaline de la Martinez, Stephen Darlington, Alice Farnham, David Robertson and Andrea Quinn.
2021 Organizing committee: Dr John Traill (University of Oxford); Dr Cayenna Ponchione-Bailey (University of Oxford); Dr Carolyn Watson (University of Kansas); Professor Fiona M. Palmer (Maynooth University); and Dr Jeremiah Cawley (Loras College).
