About the conference

The Canadian University Music Society (MusCan) will hold its annual conference on the University of Calgary campus, June 1-3, 2015. This unique gathering of music scholars, performers, composers and educators from Canada and beyond will present dynamic papers, lively round table discussions and stimulating lectures on all aspects (and all types) of music. Mini-recitals are presented daily as well, giving members and all Congress-goers the opportunity to basque in the beauty of music and the acoustics of the Eckhardt-Gramatté Recital Hall.
