Course Number
PS-534
Description

This course continues the exploration that began in Music Performance and Social Activism 1. Students explore musical performance as a tool for social change and civic activism. They examine the way artists in all countries and all genres have used music to comment on, provoke, respond to, resist, and promote social change throughout history. Through this course, students analyze important historical social movements and their music, from ancient societies through the 21st centuries. Students learn how the latest evidence of music's power for change and therapeutic benefits underscores its importance as a tool for societal betterment. Students synthesize the connections between music and social change and apply this synthesis to current issues of importance to them, as well as to their performances, especially those in community outreach events.
