How and when did music begin? How does the discovery of 40,000-year-old bone flutes impact our understanding of music within the cognitive revolution? This one-hour session will focus on these important questions through a discussion of the discovery and context of Paleolithic bone flutes found in 2008 at Hohle Fels, a cave in southern Germany.

Corey Jamason, SFCM chair of Historical Performance, will moderate a discussion with archaeologist Nicholas Conard of the University of Tübingen and Anna Friederike Potengowski, who will perform on copies of Stone Age bone flutes.

Please join us for this free event presented by The San Francisco Conservatory of Music in partnership with The Leakey Foundation.

When: May 3, 2018 at 10:00 am
