Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our Colloquium Series will be held virtually until further notice. All Music Colloquia will take place using Zoom on Tuesdays at 5:15 PM. The Department of Music at Penn sponsors several colloquia series that provide forums for invited scholars, Penn faculty, current graduate students, and postdoctoral fellows to share current research and compositions.
The Department of Music's main Colloquium Series showcases new research by leading scholars in music and sound studies and composers both in the United States and internationally.
Off-Tuesdays are informal meetings organized by faculty and the graduate student community, held on Tuesdays when no formal colloquia are scheduled. These Off-Tuesdays include working papers, book discussions, dissertation chapter workshops, and guest lectures on topics pertinent to graduate students’ research and career.
A series of informal lecture/discussions on opera held in the Lerner Center conference room (light refreshments provided). Open to the Penn community as well as other institutions in the area, these informal meetings offer the opportunity to present and hear work-in-progress around a seminar table. Materials may be pre-circulated.
PENN COMPOSERS GUILD
Graduate composers studying at the University of Pennsylvania are members of the Penn Composers Guild. Each semester, the Penn Composers Guild recital showcases works recently created by composers in the guild, and performed by some of the best student and professional musicians in the area. The Penn Composer's Guild draws its musicians from the Curtis Institute of Music and from the ranks of professional players in Philadelphia.
