Proceedings of the National Symposium on Music in Adult and Extension Education (2nd, The University of Wisconsin, Madison, May 17-18, 1965).
Sarig, Emmett R., Ed.; Hugdahl, Edward O., Ed.
In a symposium on music in adult and extension education, many noted speakers contribute their ideas and concern for reaching people musically, in all phases of life and even in inaccessible rural areas, through different uses and presentations of music. Federal funds increasingly are making the arts and music available to more people, yet many people lack the understanding to appreciate music. Musicians are not encouraged financially and academically even though with increasing leisure time there is a real need for the enjoyment of music and other arts. With the idea that music influences society, quality courses should be geared to appeal to all levels of interest, to make the amateur knowledgeable and to provide continuing education for the professional. (A list of symposium participants and their musical affiliations is included.) (jf)
