Advancing Music in Canadian Post-Secondary Institutions
A place for music scholars, practitioners, and students from across the country to come together to learn and share.
WHY JOIN MUSCAN?
WHAT DO OUR MEMBERS SAY?
“What I appreciate most about MusCan is that it is truly a society for members across all music specialties. The annual conference invites performers, composers, theorists, and musicologists to interact, share research and creative activity, and discuss issues common to music departments across the country. Conference programs reflect MusCan’s commitment to performance and performance-related topics, from mini-concerts and lecture-recitals to papers on pedagogy, musicians’ health, and historical performance practices, among many other interconnected areas. In addition, performers from the conference’s host institution are showcased in evening concerts that are always centrepieces of the event. I encourage performance faculty from across Canada to take part in this wonderfully unique organization!”
“Since the beginning of my graduate student journey, MusCan has acted as an incredible source of support, guidance, and opportunity. Through my experience presenting at the yearly conferences and serving as the current graduate student liaison, MusCan has significantly contributed to my growth as both a PhD student and as an academic. Presenting at the yearly conference is both a rewarding and constructive experience, one I encourage every student to take part in. Owing to its welcoming, congenial, and inclusive environment, the MusCan conference is the ideal platform for students to present their research and share their ideas. As part of its yearly conference, MusCan also organizes professional development workshops and networking events, both of which act as invaluable opportunities for students to connect with each other and with professionals in the field.”
“SCIM meetings are a great place to meet and share information with colleagues from institutions across the country.”
