Music is an inherently human activity, with various types of communities developing around, emerging from, or being transformed by its creation and dissemination. The “Institute for Research in Music and Community” (IRMC) brings together creators, performing musicians and scholars, as well as representatives of the music industry, government, non-profit organizations, and listeners to better understand how musical communities develop and evolve through the influence of societal, stylistic, environmental, technological, and other factors. The IRMC seeks to study diverse musical communities, present and past.
