A Few Words by J.R.Monroy, Emeritus Professor, Hon. Chair.

Covid-19 pandemic has changed our social habits and affected our daily domestico and working life, a new phenomenon of social-discomfort have started influencing social routines and people's family and working lives. What to do in this complex social circumstances when authorities are learning how to control and to guide us to avoid health problems and economic catastrophes?

This epidemic is in a process to becoming part of our present culture, associated with our common customs and beliefs in different parts of the globe, accordingly to their respective level of understanding and social capacity to confront it and to find rational transitorial solutions. How far, and in what respect, science is collaborating to alleviate this global pain and to protect millions of human lives, which today are in danger of being contaminated and to be erased from the surface of the planet earth. We all pray to find a definitive scientific solution to this malefic pandemic virus.

Culture and Music as intrinsically concatenated in all types of Human Society, primitive, modern or super-industrial. Moreover, The Cultural Evolution of mankind contributes to enhance the social role and importance of music in any society, tribal or civilized with different historical evolution.

Our webinar will be focussed in the present phenomenon of music and its social-cultural inter-relations and how music, culture and society are part of one and unique phenomenon to create music, to entertain and to educate individuals and crowds. We will focus our dialogue on personal experiences of composers, performers and musicians, shall we say, all of them, intellectual craftsmen of the performing art and with a unique role in society.

According to our understanding their intellectual work not only contributes to knowledge but also is part of the Human Spirit and its place deep in mankind-society. In essence, Music and Culture opened up the unlimited possibilities of improving the moral and intellectual conditions of mankind.

I hope LACCS-UK webinars will awaken an intellectual debate to upbringing a more comprehensive role of music in society and in the Cultural Evolution of the present Homo Sapiens.
