Soldiers’ Tales: Collecting and Sharing Military Musical heritage

Soldiers’ Tales: Collecting and Sharing Military Musical heritage

Our annual event will be held on Thursday, 22 August 2019, in Oxford and its theme will be Soldiers’ Tales: Collecting and Sharing Military Musical heritage. As agreed at our previous AGM, this event will be presented jointly with another SSN, the Army Museums Ogilby Trust (AMOT). In a departure from our usual conference-paper format, the day will focus on training and skills sharing. The sessions will include:

  • A presentation by a trainer from the Oral History Society followed by a sample oral history interview;
  • A ‘Collections in Flux’ panel to discuss and invite questions on the conservation, documentation and curatorial issues surrounding the storage, moving and redisplay of collections;
  • Talks about the practicalities of touring exhibitions featuring the Horniman’s touring ‘Object in Focus’ programme and AMOT’s proposed touring panels on military musical instruments;
  • A live lecture/demonstration of playable military instruments from the Bate Collection including the historic Simon Beale trumpet dating from 1667.

Further updates and registration details will be posted on MIRN’s Events webpage. Enquiries to: enquiries@mirn.org.uk.
