The 2014 International Music Institutions Leaders Forum recently concluded in Beijing, where I gave a keynote speech and helped with hosting, along with professors Gary McPherson and Jiaxing Xie. An initial agreement was reached for China Conservatory to collaborate with several international higher education music programs to establish an online Open Global Music Academy. This initiative promises to offer some important new vehicles for sharing of musical knowledge between China and other nations, and is especially a unique internationalization opportunity for Bergen’s music programs. Meanwhile, the next week is full of choral events in Bergen . . .
