Scotland | Edinburgh
The goal of this three-week summer study abroad program is to offer LVC students studying in ANY major the opportunity to engage with the music and culture of historic and modern Scotland. Scotland has a rich cultural heritage, with a long and varied history of music-making that includes traditional Scottish folk music (drums, woodwinds, bagpipes), as well as classical and contemporary styles (rock, dance, neo-folk). This rich musical heritage can serve to provide students with a unique context for studying music and offers opportunities for hands-on learning experiences.
- Students will attend various free and ticketed local music venues including indoor and outdoor concert halls, pubs and street entertainment.
- Students will explore historic and cultural venues in Edinburgh and the surrounding region.
- Students who are studying music may have the opportunity to attend the APME conference which is slated to be held in Edinburgh in July 2024.
