Schroeder Lecture Series
David Schroeder Music and Culture lecture series
This lecture series was begun to coincide with the advent of the graduate program as a way of offering our graduate students access to a broader range of scholars, and is named in honor of Dr. David Schroeder a distinguished musicologist who recently retired from Dalhousie University. Read the Dal News article about Dr. Schroeder's retirement and the creation of the lecture series.
The series usually includes three lectures a year, scheduled on Thursdays from 12 to 1 p.m. in room 406 of the Dal Arts Centre. Attendance is required of all graduate students. Free admission.
