CFMTA/FCAPM 2021 Conference  -  July 8 - 10, 2021

On the global stage, Canada has earned a reputation for being diverse regarding ethnicity, culture, politics, and more, but where does music fit in this framework? In a time of rising awareness regarding issues of diversity and equality, we find ourselves at a pivotal moment in history where diversity is no longer a fact, but a goal we can continually work towards and improve. With technology so readily accessible, we can easily connect now more than ever to truly embrace and demonstrate diversity in our nation and beyond.

CFMTA's 2021 Virtual Conference Connecting Canada is an opportunity to enhance our nation's reputation as fostering a musical mosaic, and to open doors.

Introspection, discussion, and progress are key components of this year's experience, and together we can work towards the goal of musical diversity from coast to coast to coast!



CFMTA/FCAPM 2023 Conference

July 5 - 8, 2023

Edmonton, Alberta

It was with disappointment that the Edmonton 2021 CFMTA/FCAPM Conference committee withdrew from planning the conference for 2021. As we discussed the new health recommendations, we quickly realized that an in person conference would not be possible, which was something we were planning towards. Edmonton has been reassigned to 2023 and we are very pleased to announce that our keynote speaker, Noa Kageyama; and piano judges, Patricia Tao, Michael Esch, and Peter Green are available to be with us in 2023. Plans for the voice competition, strings day and voice day remain as does the venue, The Chateau Lacombe Hotel, above Edmonton's river valley. The committee is committed to bringing the 2023 “A Rhythm Runs Through It” conference to fruition and welcoming the CFMTA/FCAPM membership to Edmonton as we learn, listen, laugh, and visit together once again.
