Sixty-Fourth National Conference (2021)

The College Music Society will hold its Sixty-Fourth National Conference October 7-9, 2021, at the Rochester Riverside Convention Center and the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, New York, in conjunction the 2021 National Conference of the Association for Technology in Music Instruction (ATMI).

CMS National Conferences routinely attract over 450 faculty, administrators, graduate students, independent scholars, composers, publishers, and music business personnel who share a common interest and dedication to the improvement of music and its relationship to the other academic disciplines of higher education.

The conference program presents higher education's broadest array of topics dealing with music. Academic citizenship, administration, music business and industry, careers in music, community engagement, composition, cultural inclusion, ethnomusicology, higher education, mentoring, music education, music in general studies, music technology, music theory, musicology, performance, and the scholarship of teaching and learning are explored in a variety of formats. Through papers, performances, lecture-recitals, panels, posters, and workshops, CMS conferences provide the opportunity to consider the philosophy and practice of music as an integral part of higher education. Through formal sessions and open discussions, these programs provide an opportunity to share insights and perspectives on teaching, to experience new and regional musics, and to consider future directions for the art of music.
