Centenary Chronicle Chapter 1
Archer, Robyn
Australian Journal of Music Education, n2 p3-16 2013
This article offers the transcript of Robyn Archer's address at the Australian Society for Music Education (ASME) Conference in Canberra in September 2013. Archer is a singer, writer, director, artistic director, and public advocate of the arts, mainly in Australia though her reach is global. This lecture is the second of six addresses Archer gave in the second half of the Canberra Centenary year. She used each lecture to focus on different parts of the Centenary Program. Together these lectures act as a chronicle of the year. The present lecture focuses on the music that has been heard, and is still to be heard in Canberra in 2013, the year in which Australians celebrate the naming on March 12, 1913, of a new capital for a newly federated nation. Throughout her lecture, she illustrates how the national capital is an illuminating example of the passion of Australians for all kinds of music.
