We’re Back! 2022 Conference Your Way

September 23 & 24, 2022
Crossroads Church
Red Deer, AB

Our first-ever hybrid conference will give members the choice of attending in-person or through live streaming.  The full schedule and registration information will be sent to members in early June, but mark your calendars now as we have secured Adam Johnson as our headliner and are putting the final touches on our other clinicians and concert performer.  You won’t want to miss these two days of professional development and renewing connections with your APTA family.

Adam Johnson holds a Doctorate in Piano Performance from the Université de Montréal and a Prize in Orchestral Conducting from the Conservatoire de musique de Montréal.  Prior to becoming the Resident Conductor of the Montréal Symphony Orchestra, he served three seasons with the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra, and he continues to maintain a frequent presence on the podium as guest conductor of orchestras across Canada and Europe.  In high demand as a pedagogue, he served on the faculties of the McGill Conservatory and the Université du Québec à Montréal. He has also taught harmony, analysis, and chamber music, and translated a major treatise on harmonic analysis from French to English. He is actively working to create societal change through increasing the impact of music education, reaching thousands of students by providing online training for music educators.

Dr. Johnson’s 2020 webinar for APTA on the topic of phrasing was so popular, we brought him back for a sequel in 2021.  We are thrilled to be able to meet him in person this September when he will be presenting four sessions along with other clinicians guaranteed to inspire.  Our annual conference is a time for warmth, comradeship, and mingling as we attend sessions, share meals, browse new music releases, and celebrate accomplishments.   This year, we will also offer a live-streaming option for those who would prefer to attend from home.  Your conference.  Your way.
