2023 Conference of the New Zealand Musicological Society
Otago University’s School of Performing Arts and Head of Music Prof. Peter Adams welcome you to their wonderful new spaces for this conference.
The conference will begin with registrations from 12 midday on Friday June 16, with proceedings getting underway with a Mihi Whakatau and opening remarks at 1pm.
There are early evening concerts on both the Friday and the Saturday, these will be held five-minute’s walk away in the beautiful Marama Hall, and the conference dinner will be held at the adjacent Otago University Staff Club (once the Law School) on the Friday night.
The conference will close around 12 Midday on Sunday June 18.
All sessions except the concerts will be held in the School of Performing Arts’ new building: Te korokoro o te Tūī (the voice-box of the Tūī). The conference is catered with morning and afternoon teas and lunch on Saturday and Sunday provided.
A comprehensive Covid policy and protocols that we will be following can be found here. Abstracts are now being read by an NZMS sub-committee and decisions will be forthcoming shortly. There may be suggestions to help you get your abstract into the best possible shape for publication in the conference programme.
A detailed conference programme and timetable will follow later in April, and in due course we will be asking for all paper authors to provide us with a short bio to put into the programme.
