Graduate Colloquium

Presented by Graduate Studies in Music, the Don Wright Faculty of Music Graduate Colloquium series includes lectures by distinguished guests, Western faculty members, and senior graduate students on all fields of research and creative activity in music.

John Beckwith (Prof. Emeritus, University of Toronto)
“CanMus Then and Now”

This talk will comment on musical observances of the Centennial of Confederation in 1967, from someone who witnessed them first-hand, and will compare those observances with the sesquicentennial observances of 2017. The survey finds marked differences, illustrating not only how the country has evolved in fifty years, but also how music itself has evolved.

All Colloquium series events take place on selected Fridays in Talbot College 101 at 3:30 pm. (unless otherwise noted). Admission is free, and all are welcome to attend!
