Our seminars are open to all students and staff. These are held weekly during term and include research and composer seminars from visiting lecturers, staff, and students.
These seminars normally run every Tuesday, from 4.00-5.30pm in room 106. Some are given by visiting speakers and others are given by (usually postgraduate) students. They provide the main forum for group discussion, and often continue in less formal surroundings into the evening. Undergraduate composers who would like to attend these postgraduate seminars are very welcome.
Research Seminars are normally held on Wednesdays 4.00-5.30pm in the Autumn and Spring Terms. The series includes papers by visiting speakers and presentations by staff and research students.
Vocal workshops normally take place on Tuesdays at 4.00pm in 058 (unless otherwise stated). Instrumental workshops normally take place on Wednesdays at 2pm in 106. All students, teachers and staff are welcome to attend the sessions, which are free.
I came specifically to York due to the degree format. No other college offers such an equal weighting between performance and musicology at the undergraduate university level. However, I also chose Britain for my university education because England is considered to be one of the foremost locations for an exceptional musical education.
