We agreed that we would make  every effort to include a session on the history of music education in that country. At the 2008 conference in Bologna, HSC sponsored  a symposium on solmisation, and organised a tour to Arezzo, both cases highlighting the contributions of Italian musician and  innovator Guido d’Arezzo. In Beijing in 2010 the sponsored symposium focused on the influence and presence of Confucian  philosophy in the history of music education in China.  At the 2012 conference in Thessaloniki, the focus of the symposium was on  the contribution of Greek philosophy to music education across cultures.  For the upcoming conference in Porto Alegre, the History Standing Committee proposes a Symposium on the theme of The Diverse  Histories of Music Education in Brazil: a dialogue across cultures. The format chosen is a symposium that will include a major invited  paper by a distinguished presenter, with three respondents from music education historians from Argentina, Australia, and France.  Each respondent will address aspects of the main paper and assess ways in which the Brazilian historical tradition in music education  compares and contrasts with that in their own cultural contexts. This comparative approach should help to deepen our understanding  of the scope and reach of historical research in all its diversity.
