The RMA hosts and supports a huge number of events each year, from flagship conferences to study days, workshops and chapter meetings. You can find out more about these, how to get involved, apply for RMA affiliation, and how to organise an event of your own, in this part of the site. Each year we hold:

An Annual Conference open to performers, composers and researchers of all musical disciplines, usually held in early September.

Research Students’ Conference for postgraduate and early career researchers, run in partnership with the British Forum for Ethnomusicology. This is usually held in early January and includes career development events in addition to paper, poster and lecture recital presentations, workshops and concerts.

A series of Study Days on a variety of topics. Anyone can put forward a proposal to run a study day with assistance from the RMA.

We also invite applications for conference affiliation, which can include assistance with publicity and branding, or financial support if required.

Our events series is managed by the Events Committee and a separate sub-committee with responsibility for flagship conferences. For more information, contact the Events Committee chairman Thomas Schmidt.
