Annual Graduate Symposium

The Society of Graduate Students in Music at Western University is pleased to announce its 23rd annual Graduate Symposium on Music (WUGSOM), August 26th – 27th, 2022. This year Dr. Maisie Sum (Conrad Grebel University College - Waterloo University) will deliver the keynote address, tentatively titled, "Rules, Rites, and Respect: Performing Black Moroccan Music and Culture." 

This year we received abstracts from 20 different universities, both domestic and international, and are pleased to share a diverse and exciting series of presentations.

As a reminder, we will be virtual this year in order to best accommodate our attendees and speakers. There is no cost for you to attend.
