Description

This phenomenological study seeks to better understand the lives of Adventist musicians within the wider classical music community. Adventism is defined by Laurence R. Iannaccone as a ‘strict’ religion—one which impacts multiple aspects of its members lives and requires strong commitment. Similar to a study by Annabelle Fung on Christian musicians, this study explores what happens when an Adventist chooses or is ‘called’ to a musical career, especially the interactions between their unique religious and professional identities. Interviews were conducted with each Adventist musician and themes were identified from the data by a content analysis.
