About the Event

 Music Conference Alberta is Alberta’s premier professional development opportunity for music teachers, choral conductors, band directors, and studio instructors.  Held at the Sutton Place Hotel in Edmonton, delegates are invited to attend interest sessions, interactive panel discussions, open rehearsals and rehearsal labs, masterclasses, MCA One-on-One sessions, and concerts.  The MCA Marketplace provides an opportunity for delegates to browse and purchase product, meet industry representatives, and learn about upcoming travel and fundraising opportunities.  Leaders in music education in the province are recognized in the company of their peers at the MCA Awards Luncheon.

Session descriptions, presenter biographies and other relevant information is available on the Music Conference Alberta website.

Delegates are encouraged to stay at the Sutton Place Hotel Edmonton, and special rates for accommodation have been arranged. The Sutton Place Hotel Edmonton, situated in the heart of downtown and immediately adjacent to the brand new ICE District, combines the perfect location, convenience, and modern renovated guest rooms all into one. Connected by an indoor pedway to Edmonton City Centre Mall, major office towers, 400 stores, and the Light Rail Transit (LRT), the hotel is an easy 10-minute walk to Rogers Place, the new home of the Edmonton Oilers, Shaw Conference Centre, Sir Winston Churchill Square, Citadel Theatre, Edmonton Art Gallery of Alberta, and Winspear Centre for the Performing Arts.

 

Visit the Staying at the Sutton Place Hotel page on the Music Conference Alberta website for details and booking information.
