Music Conference Alberta is Alberta’s premier professional development opportunity for music teachers, choral conductors, band directors, and studio instructors. Held in Calgary at the Hilton Garden Inn, Studio Bell, the Calgary Central Library, and Bella Concert Hall, 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.
The conference schedule and session descriptions are available under the tabs at the top of this webpage. Presenter biographies and other relevant information is available on the Music Conference Alberta website.
Delegates are encouraged to stay at the Hilton Garden Inn Calgary, and special rates for accommodation have been arranged. The new Hilton Garden Inn Calgary Downtown hotel is set in trendy East Village, just steps from Calgary’s business district, city agencies and beautiful urban parks. Take the RiverWalk pathway to restaurants, playgrounds and event plazas, and discover the popular St. Patrick’s Island. Scotiabank Saddledome and the National Music Centre are just 1 kilometer away.
