Plenary

Session Abstract

The Robert E. and Bonnie Cone Hooper Plenary will be Tokens Show. Since 2008 one of the grandest of CSC traditions has been its fruitful relationship with Tokens Show. To describe the show host Lee C. Camp says, “imagine a world governed by hospitality, graciousness and joy … and social conditions ordered by justice, mercy and peace-making. We exhibit tokens of such a world in music-making, song-singing, and conversations about things that matter.” Reviewers have effused that Tokens “transcends mere entertainment, ascending instead to the level of education, even enlightenment.” Our annual partnership, initiated during Tokens’ inaugural session, creates for the CSC a cultural and academic experience where the conference theme is further explored by “musicians without borders and poets, philosophers, theologians and humorists transgressing borders.”
