WHY DOES THE JUILLIARD GIFT SHOP SELL PLASTIC COMPOSER BUSTS?
Williamstown, 4:15 p.m.
Professor Mary Hunter of Bowdoin College gives a lecture titled, “Why does the Juilliard Gift Shop sell Plastic Composer Busts?” There are many possible reasons for this, but among them is the way these objects are analogous to the ideological complications of playing classical music. This lecture is sponsored by the Class of 1960 Scholars Fund and is free and open to the public.    http://music.williams.edu/events/prof-mary-hunter/

CLASS OF 1960 LECTURE
Williamstown, 4:15 p.m.
Professor Mary Hunter of Bowdoin College gives a lecture titled “Why does the Juilliard Gift Shop sell Plastic Composer Busts” in Bernhard Music Center Room 30 on the Williams College campus. This lecture is sponsored by the Class of 1960 Scholars Fund and is free and open to the public. Classical music culture continues to include busts of composers -- often strikingly cheap and cheesy objects — while other elite arts do not. There are many possible reasons for this, but among them is the way these objects are analogous to the ideological complications of playing classical music.
