Join us in Sackville, New Brunswick for the 2011 conference of the Canadian University Music Society (CUMS), in collaboration with the Canadian Association of Music Libraries, Archives and Documentation Centres (CAML).  Enjoy our small town, our residential university campus, and our renowned Waterfowl Park during the most beautiful time of the year.  

The conference will feature concerts performances, academic papers and stimulating discussions.  Our program committee has planned over forty papers, five mini- and lecture- recitals.  and two plenary sessions, including a keynote address by Dr. Robin Elliott, Jean A. Chalmers Chair in Canadian Music, University of Toronto.  

The opening concert, by flutist Karin Aurell and organist Gayle h. Martin, will take place in our lovely University Chapel, followed by a reception in the Owens Art Gallery (the oldest university art gallery in Canada).  The next evening will bring a performance of recent music by New Brunswick’s Motion Ensemble. The conference banquet will be held in historic Tweedie Hall in the Wallace McCain Student Centre.

A block of rooms is on hold in our residences and there are several bed-and-breakfast and hotel accommodations available off-campus, only a few minutes walk from the Conference site.
