Eureka! Musical Minds of California



Eureka! conference aims to create an unprecedented environment to showcase the diverse work created in California graduate music institutions. Concentrating on breaking down interdisciplinary and institutional boundaries between musicologists, theorists, ethnomusicologists, music educators, composers, sound artists, and performers, Eureka! forges lasting connections between graduate scholars within the state. 

Directed by Elisse La Barre (UCSC) and Leslie La Barre (CGU), the third biannual conference will be presented in partnership with California State University, East Bay.

Eureka! is pleased to announce  Dr. Gabriela Lena Frank as the 2019 Keynote and members of Amaranth Quartet as the ensemble-in-residence.
