Music educators from across the province will gather in Red Deer from Nov. 1 to 3 for the annual Music Conference Alberta.
Specific sessions are for elementary music teachers, choral and band directors, children’s choir conductors, church musicians and studio instructors.
A gala concert will feature the Alberta Youth Choir and Alberta Honour Band.
A trade fair is also planned.
Jonathan Govias, who’s guest conducted numerous prestigious North American orchestras, and Jeff Nelsen, former Canadian Brass horn player and now a music professor at Indiana University, will give keynote speeches.
The Alberta Choral Symposium, a forum for sharing academic research on choral music education, is also part of the weekend.
Music Conference Alberta has been co-produced since its 2007 inception by the Alberta Choral Federation, the Alberta Band Association and the Alberta Music Education Foundation.
