This Fall 2016, students in the ASU Music Education Course Digital and Participatory Culture in Music are engaging as a design team facilitated by Evan Tobias to develop a set of participatory music engagement and learning opportunities around the music and ideas of the St. Cecilia Concert: Appear! Inspire! A Celebration of Music

The concert features the ASU Chamber Singers and Chamber Orchestra conducted by David Schildkret with special guests OME (Oh My Ears) and Rosie’s House. Through this project, we hope to extend the concert event to long-term or multifaceted engagement in varied ways that apply principles of digital and participatory cultures. 

Please consider exploring the projects we developed and attending the concert!
