Respectful Collaboration with Indigenous Artists
With Dr. Lori-Anne Dolloff, University of Toronto
Professor, composer and conductor Lori-Anne Dolloff is passionate about reshaping the way we think about Indigenous inclusion in choral performances. Informed by many years of teaching music in the Canadian Arctic and her research on Indigenous reconciliation in Canada through music education, Dr. Dolloff's approach seeks to establish partnerships and collaboration. Her Choral Mosaic workshop will provide guidance on the performance of Indigenous music with an attitude of what she identifies as "cultural humility."
