Events of special interest to music theorists held at the CUNY Gradate Center

 During the semester, the Music Department presents a number of formal and informal events, meetings, and guest lectures that are available to students of the Music Theory program at the CUNY Graduate Center. These events include:

  • Theory Group meetings: informal gatherings where theory majors discuss their recent projects or progress on their dissertation; present conference previews; and discuss other issues of concern as a community.
  • Professional Development Workshop: workshops for students of all majors that discuss specific aspects that relate to scholarship and career, such as applying for grants, writing a CV, and the like.
