A Message from The Director

Welcome back all from what was hopefully a relaxing, fulfilling and rejuvenating summer despite the unrelenting hot weather! Once again it’s time to prepare for the new school year and reconnect for inspiring musical collaboration, challenges and growth Thank-you for your commitment to the Conservatory and contributing to this thriving community.

  1. Once again we will be part of Schulich’s concert brochure that will come out fairly soon and will be available in the Pollack lobby and our office. Take advantage of picking up your complimentary tickets at the Box Office for Conservatory and other Schulich events as well (all except the opera!). Not to be missed: September 30th, Redpath Hall, 2pm featuring mini recitals from a few of our accomplished students alongside performances from the highest graded exams in Sec V, Collegial 1 and 2 exams. This event will be part of Journées de la Culture and is free and open to the public – come support this hard work!
  2. Registration is active for Fall Term and the September 5th deadline is fast approaching! Please consider registering for the whole year now to avoid missing future deadlines. You will only be billed at the later deadlines for tuition fees. Please consider online banking to save time and money by setting up advance payments. And remember that we are open to discussing deferred payment plans if required. Refer to https://mcgill.ca/conservatory/dates-and-fees/important-dates for important information on dates.
  3. Our annual Scholarship Gala will this year again take place in Tanna Schulich Hall on Sunday, November 11th, 2pm. Let’s fill the hall to support the work of our students and teachers!

Please consider adding a music theory/ear training/history course to your studies this year. Our programs are an excellent way to develop your understanding of and relationship to the repertoire you study. As most courses are year-round, now is the time to register! The placement exam is September 6th at 6pm: https://mcgill.ca/conservatory/dates-and-fees/important-dates/placement-...

Looking forward to seeing you all soon.
