We often applaud the world-class performers at the Schulich School of Music, but this week it is our humanities-based research that takes center stage. From Nov. 6 – Nov. 9, 2014, 20 professors and graduate students lead the way when the American Musicological Society and the Society for Music Theory host their joint annual meeting in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The number of presentations alone is impressive given that this is the largest and most important conference of humanities-based research in music; it is also the largest number of presentations given by any school.
