"Colloquia are the means by which graduate students integrate themselves into the broader scholarly community. There is really no substitute for this kind of real-time interaction in which we learn how to best communicate our research interests, goals, and methods."
- August Sheehy, Graduate student in Music History and Theory
The Department of Music Colloquium Series brings leaders from across the fields of music theory, history, composition, and ethnomusicology to present their work to faculty and graduate students. The series provides students with access to scholars working at the forefront of their fields. It is an all-departmental dialogue, which graduate students organize alongside faculty in response to the Department’s intellectual and musical interests.
All colloquia are open to the public and take place at 3:30 PM in Fulton Recital Hall. Admission is free.
