For its 3rd International Symposium, the Princess Galyani Vadhana Institute of Music will reflect on Southeast Asia’s current transitional period following the creation of the AEC (Asean Economic Community).


In this time of economic, social and socio-cultural integration, how can music help connect our voices and transcend our differences? To what extent can music communicate knowledge and create connections between people of different cultures? How can musicians and educators contribute to a sustainable socio-cultural development of the ASEAN community?
