Speaker Series Events

Music & Culture Speaker Series

The Music & Culture Performance Speaker Series at the University of Toronto Scarborough showcases the breadth and depth of a variety of professional relationships to music. Invited speakers are asked to both speak to and perform their relationship to music-making, composition, and/or performance. Our goal is to provide students in the program and members of the wider community with an accessible experience by which they can explore the varied relationships scholars and artists create with, and to, music.
