Lecture: Multiculturalism in the World of Chamber Music

Join us for this in-person lecture produced by Chamber Music Raleigh in the socially distanced SECU Auditorium. The talk, given by Dr. Jonathan C. Kramer, will examine what is meant by “chamber music.” Rather than thinking of it as taking the form of European-originated, small, conductorless ensembles, chamber music can be conceived of as a large spectrum of global genres. Including Gaelic ceilidhs, West African drum circles, and Indian sitar, table, and drone ensembles, there are many types of “chamber” ensembles found throughout North Carolina and the world. Rock guitar, bass, keyboard, and drums are chamber music, as is jazz combo and bluegrass.

About the speaker

Jonathan C. Kramer, PhD, served as professor of music and arts studies at the North Carolina State University for 35 years and as adjunct professor of ethnomusicology at Duke University for 20 years.
