Acts of Hospitality: The Community in Community Music
Higgins, Lee
Music Education Research, v9 n2 p281-292 Jul 2007
This article will investigate the notion of "community" within the aspirations of Community Music. Guiding this study are the questions: How is community made manifest through Community Music? What joins the notion of community to that of music? Two distinct sections will frame this research: (1) an etymological consideration of the word "community", followed by a rethinking of its status as a hospitable act of welcoming; and (2) a case study that examples a vision of Community Music as an act of hospitality. The article will conclude by suggesting that this act of hospitality serves to remind us of the broader theme of music education, equality and social justice. (Contains 12 notes.)
