A Message from The Director

I’d like to welcome everyone back – students, parents, instructors, staff – from a hopefully relaxing and rejuvenating summer. Once again it’s time to begin the new school year and reconnect for inspiring musical collaboration, challenges and growth Thank-you for your commitment to the Conservatory and being a part of this thriving community.

  1. Again we are part of Schulich’s concert brochure (see pg. 35 of https://issuu.com/schulichschoolofmusic/docs/slch_prog_2017-18_eng_f_low ). Pick up your complimentary tickets at the Box Office for other Schulich events as well (all except the opera!). Our first Conservatory concert will take place September 24th at 4pm in Redpath Hall and features two of our String Faculty – Emily Yang (cello) and Judy Hung (violin/piano) with two invited colleagues.
  2. Registration is active for Fall Term and the September 6th 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://www.mcgill.ca/conservatory/dates-and-fees/important-dates for important information on dates.
  3. Last Spring’s concerto competition and performance with Cristian Gort’s Orchestre de l’Ile was a huge success. What a joy to witness all the hard work by students in preparation for this competition. Though we aren’t able this year to have another orchestral collaboration we will hold another competition within the Conservatory on the afternoon and evening of Sunday April 15th. SAVE THE DATE and start planning now!
  4. Our annual Scholarship Gala will this year take place in Tanna Schulich Hall on Sunday, November 12th, 3pm. Let’s fill the hall to support the work of our students and teachers!

Looking forward to seeing you all soon.
