Luise E. Peake Music & Culture Colloquium Series

The Luise E. Peake Music & Culture Colloquium is a public event series hosted by the Music History, Ethnomusicology and Experimental Music faculty at the University of South Carolina School of Music, and is dedicated to showcasing diverse programming and guests, especially emerging scholars and artists.

Named after the late musicologist Professor Luise Eitel Peake-Dickerman who served on the School of Music faculty from 1968 to 1994, the Peake Colloquium offers the School of Music, University, and Columbia communities with free workshops, concerts, scholarly talks and films that engage with musical histories of the past and present, performance practices, and global cultures.

All Luise E. Peake Music & Culture Colloquium events are free and open to the public unless otherwise indicated. A reception for students follows each event.
