Event description

Description

Professor Linda Merrick, Principal and Professor at the Royal Northern College of Music, has an international profile as a clarinet soloist, recording artist and clinician. She is also Chair of Conservatories UK and a member of the International Advisory Council for the Creative Industries Federation.

In her oration, headlined ‘The value of a performing arts education in a changing world’, Professor Merrick will outline how in an uncertain world, performing arts matters now more than ever before.

Professor Merrick will explore how this discipline continues to offer many political, economic, social, educational and personal benefits.

From the rapid rise of social media and the major changes in how young people access music to the exponential growth in TV talent shows, Professor Merrick will also explore the conflict between artistic integrity and the economic realities of today.

Reflecting on what the future may hold she will explain how higher education can respond to the challenges of an increasingly global, virtual and media driven world.
