Shaping the arts and arts education for the 21st century
The “What’s Next” initiative defines Pacific’s Conservatory as a national leader in shaping the arts and arts education for the 21st century. Thought leaders in music industry, music management, contemporary music, jazz, chamber music, and commerce, come to Pacific to shape a conversation about music. Together, we look ahead with both a 10 year and 60 year viewpoint to envision arts in the 21st century. What will it look like in the year 2028 vs 2078 and beyond? In 2078 the Conservatory of Music will be 200 years old. What will music education be, how will communities use music to define identity, culture, expression?
With funding support, talented educators and musicians, and cultural thought leaders can be brought to campus to help our students shape the conversation on campus, in the community, and on the national stage. Stockton is emerging as a new entity in the cultural marketplace, a city that is sitting on the edge of creative conversations for change. The Founders of the Conservatory saw great inspiration in the transformative power of music and education. This next generation of student leaders will continue to have a profound impact on the how the future shapes music; and how music will shape the future.Give
