Music, Mayhem and Change was the inaugural student led symposium held at the Queensland Conservatorium, Griffith University (QCGU). The theme was inspired by the 50th anniversary of The Beatles touring Australia. When we designed the theme, we considered what The Beatles and this tour represented for music. That one group could have such a widespread effect that is still felt 50 years on made us pause to consider other changes, big and small, that impact on music and how these changes have impacted on society. And so the concept for Music, Mayhem, and Change was born.
On 10 September, GUPSA hosted a performance night, A Musical Tapestry, for coursework students in the Ian Hanger Hall at the Conservatorium.
