For those of us for whom music is a way of life as musicians or fans, what does this interesting time for the relationship between music, religion and spirituality mean for how we think about our own lives? And how can musicians find not only common interests, but maybe even new opportunities for collaboration and employment, with those who value the spiritual dimension of music? Focusing on rock and hip hop, this session will feature practicing musicians and scholars who will explore how musicians and audiences use popular music to work out their personal and communal spiritual quests.
