Connections in China: Harmonizing stories of community music from around the world
In this article the author offers a personal reflection on the 12th seminar of the ISME Commission for Community Music Activity in Hangzhou, China, 2010. She gives summaries of all the presentation topics, as well as personal narrative accounts of her experiences at the seminar. These reflective descriptions bring the seminar to life for the reader and also tease out some of the cultural dimensions to the Commission's time in China. As such the article offers both 'macro' and 'micro' glimpses of the key themes covered at the seminar, as well as reflections on community music making in the context of the seminar's hosting country, China.
