2023 marked the twentieth anniversary of the founding of the Society for Musicology in Ireland. To celebrate this, the Society hosted a special two-day symposium, Music for Stage and Screen, at the Jerome Hynes Theatre, National Opera House, Wexford on 10-11 March 2023. The symposium included a keynote address - The Moving Image of Music (before and after film) - by Professor Peter Franklin, Emeritus Fellow at Oxford University, along with themed panels on opera and music for theatre and film; a roundtable discussion involving past SMI presidents and international guests; a vocal recital with Sharon Carty (mezzo-soprano) and Úna Hunt (piano); a talk on the history of Wexford Festival Opera by Dr Karina Daly; and optional tours of the National Opera House.
