The 25th Annual Pacific Northwest Graduate Music Conference will take place at the University of British Columbia (UBC) School of Music, February 21–22, 2015, in Vancouver, BC.

This conference provides an excellent forum for young music scholars in various sub-disciplines to exchange ideas and present original research. Professor Nathan Hesselink (UBC) will deliver the keynote talk, “Bring On the Night: Rhythmic Play, Compositional Intent, and Communication in the Music of The Police.”

The program committee encourages submissions from graduate students (or advanced undergraduates) in musicology, theory, ethnomusicology, music education, performance, and composition. Presentations will be 20 minutes, followed by a 10-minute question period. Lecture recitals of up to 30 minutes are also welcome.

Presentations must consist of research that has not previously been published or presented at a national conference. Individuals may submit more than one abstract, but only one may be accepted for presentation. Submissions should be sent by email to [email protected] no later than December 1, 2014. The body of the email should include the submitter’s name, email address, and institutional affiliation. Abstracts should be attached as PDF or Word files, be free of any identifying information, and not exceed 300 words. If necessary, supporting diagrams and figures are permitted (max. 3 pages).
