Becoming Eleanor Stubley:
Beyond the Given
CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS
As a versatile conductor and an accomplished scholar, I am constantly reaching beyond the given as a I strive to renew and revitalize music as a performing art. The striving has developed a unique ability not only to bridge the gap between theory and practice, but, in many ways, to erase that gap altogether through an unswerving focus on the transformative relationship between body and music.

Eleanor Stubley combined her musical and educational selves in ways that were at once profoundly creative and wildly philosophical. Moving beyond disciplinary boundaries, she mobilized her hands to engage both music and language as bodily experience. Her desire to explore, learn, know and feel more, beyond the given, animates this call for contributions to an interdisciplinary research symposium and performance installation in response to and in honour of the life and work of scholar, conductor, and in all ways, music educator, Eleanor Stubley.
