Welcome back! The 2017-18 academic year starts Sept. 5, 2017!

Welcome Back!

Welcome back to a new academic cycle! This year we are launching this new site intended to encapsulate all of the information about composition and sonic arts at the University of Alberta, for both current and prospective students. While we will strive to keep this site updated and informative, please refer to the official music department pages for up-to-date information about our programs, auditions, etc. This site is meant to summarize those things as much as possible, as well as providing a quick snapshot of our current year’s activities. Please note: all dates for student concerts and events are listed in the sidebar. Please check this site often for updates and reminders!


This year’s new and returning student orientation will be on Wednesday, Sept. 27. The current schedule is as follows:

  • 9:30 AM – 11:30 AM Graduate Student Orientation, Convocation Hall
  • 1:00 PM – 3:30 PM Undergraduate Student Orientation, Convocation Hall
  • 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM Orientation to the Composition program, as well as new music ensembles, Studio 27-D in the Fine Arts Building (behind Studio 27)

Informal Graphic Competition

See the silly graphic at the top of the page? If anyone has better ideas – we are initiating an informal competition to create a graphic for this page that represents what we do here. So, if you have ideas, send them to Scott Smallwood.

We are looking forward to seeing you all, and hearing your great new music!!
