MusCan Members:

Please join the MusCan Board of Directors in congratulating Dr. Harald Krebs (University of Victoria) on being elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada.

The following announcement was issued by Dr.  William Caplin for the Society for Music Theory:

I am pleased to announce that Harald Krebs, former president of SMT, has been elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada.

The citation from the Society reads as follows:
  
"Harald Krebs is an internationally renowned music theorist. In his writings, he sheds light on neglected repertoires, such as the songs of 19th-century female composers and the late music of Robert Schumann. Particularly influential is his model of musical meter, created primarily for analysis of 17th- to 19th-century tonal music, but subsequently employed by numerous music theorists in the explication of diverse recent musics, including jazz, rock and techno.”
