100 years of the Faculty of Music

The 2022-2023 academic year marks the 100th anniversary of the Faculty of Music at Université Laval. For the occasion, the Faculty is organizing a series of events, including the launch of the festivities on June 10 at the Palais Montcalm until the closing event, the 100th Congress, organized by the Faculty of Music, May 16 to 21, 2023, at Laval University, under the theme “Dialogues”.
