RNCM Research Forum – Heather Roberts
Musical lions and the god Apollo—the RNCM in symbols
Wednesday 8 February 2023, 4.15pm
RNCM Lecture Theatre
Our new series of Research Forums will be livestreamed from the RNCM YouTube channel. The audience has the opportunity to hear presentations from academics, performers and composers, and to engage in the exchange of ideas that follows. Talks usually last about an hour, including a Q&A session. Join us in person or watch this session livestreamed.
Take a trip with our Archivist, Heather, on a journey through the visual metaphors of the Royal Northern College of Music. Each element of the colours, animals, objects, shape and motto of its crest were (sometimes painstakingly!) discussed in the 1970s. While the RNCM is more than the sum of its symbols, following Heather on this exploration of the stories behind each element might change the way you think about the college.
Free admission, no ticket required.
