Description In 2022 this unit replaced by 102859 - Performing as a Professional Musician. Repertoire and Identity in Performance is the third year unit that completes the Music Performance major and sub-major. It gives students the opportunity to conceptualise, perform and feature in a 20-minute project in a concert setting. It is expected that the preceding five semesters of music performance study will be drawn upon to give a cohesive performance that resonates with each student's particular musical identity. A written task, supported by a series of lectures, will encourage students to consider constructions of identity in their own performances and those of others. Through a series of workshops, students will receive feedback on their work in progress from their lecturer and colleagues, completing a circle of practice and critical engagement.
