Modernism, post-modernism, structuralism, post-modern musicology, regionalism, trans-avant-garde, post-colonialism, deconstruction, music as cultural trope, de-terretorialization, cultural autonomy, musical narratology! What is the everyday, practical church musician to make of all these new and confusing terms in the artistic vocabulary? Does any of it even matter on Wednesday or Thursday night, or on Sunday morning? This presentation will try to make sense of the intellectual, social, and artistic movement called Post-Modernism, in our musical context. There will be an opportunity for discussion, and time to work through a personal assessment, to discern “How Post-Modern Am I?  Please join us on Friday, November 9th, 7:30 pm, at Trillium Lutheran Church, 22 Willow Street, Waterloo, for this interesting and timely discussion.
