“The Public Domain: Celebrating the Lifecycle of Copyright,” part of the Copyright Matters event series, will focus on works entering the public domain in 2019 and how they can be used by creators. Three creators will present works they have made based on public domain works and will provide an overview of their creative process. They also will discuss what the public domain is and how it has changed since the internet.
The Metropolitan School of the Arts Advanced Choir will perform selections of material in the public domain. The eight students in this exclusive group are mostly music theater-focused, studying voice, dance, and theater in a conservatory style performance arts program.
