Saliksik-Musika means “Music Research”. The UP College of Music Graduate Programs open its conference to international participants. As a collective ecosystem of researchers, performers and composers, the Graduate Programs thrive on the students’ conceptual-and-expressive core by building scholarship, performativity, and creativity.

In this conference, students will be presenting part of their thesis/dissertations, or even work-in-progress studies. The gathering opens opportunities for students’ works to be presented, talked about, critically reviewed, and opened to the enrichment of others in the field.

The conference will have sessions for paper presentations and discussions, lecture-demonstrations of music/dance performances, open session/“Talk-in-Circle”, and virtual performance of compositions.

These conference activities are aligned with the UP CMu’s mission of achieving “a community of thinking and creative performing artists and scholars transforming the world through ideas, sound, and movement.”
