The Sound Studies Institute at the University of Alberta hosts regular events that enrich our contribution to the educational and sonic community. This page lists the events coming up in the next month. In the 2021-22 year, we will initially continue to host our lectures as online events, but we are working to move to a hybrid model for the winter term (live in-person combined with live streaming).

Upcoming Events for 2021-22

Nov. 22, 2021 – 4:30 PM (MST)

Dana Wylie – LIVE@SSI

Come hear Edmonton-based singer/songwriter Dana Wylie–nominated for her album at the Canadian Folk Music Awards–share her powerful original compositions and arrangements of traditional folk songs, including pieces featured in her recent theatrical song-cycle Makings of A Voice.

Makings of a Voice is a theatrical song cycle about discovering our individual identity within generational narratives. A personal journey situated somewhere between the past and the present, between motherhood and daughterhood, between music and monologue, this intimate piece follows a messy trajectory into the heart of one woman’s story and provides a compelling argument for why our stories need to be told.
