Musical Heritage in an Online Environment -IAML Online Meeting 8 March 2021

Musical Heritage in an Online Environment

The emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic, with its wide-ranging impact on everyday lives and livelihoods, has inevitably focused attention on the challenges and opportunities of online communication and dissemination.
