Canada 150: Music and Belonging
May 26, 2017 - May 27, 2017
This conference will be held in the Faculty of Music at the University of Toronto from Thursday, May 25th to Saturday, May 27th, 2017. All four of the scholarly societies in Canada devoted to music will be participating: the Canadian University Music Society; the Canadian Association of Music Libraries, Archives, and Documentation Centres; the Canadian Society for Traditional Music; and the International Association for the Study of Popular Music, Canada branch. The members of these four societies collectively study the history and contemporary state of the creation, performance, and preservation of all types of music in Canada, including traditional, popular, jazz, folk, and classical repertoires. The conference will include papers, plenary sessions, special guest speakers, and performances: there will be something of interest for everyone with an interest in music in Canada.
