Celebrating a season full of distinguished musicians and memorable music.

For almost two decades, Brandon University’s School of Music has  presented more than 200 pro series, New Music Festival, and special concerts to the extraordinary audiences of Southwestern Manitoba. Through these concerts, we have had the pleasure of hearing many of the wonderful faculty members of the School of Music and an incredible array of other internationally renowned artists. In bringing these phenomenal musicians to the intimate and acoustically superb Lorne Watson Recital Hall, the pro series aims to make an invaluable contribution to our community.

The pro series will continue with Tuesday night concerts, with the exception of the Homecoming performance.  We hope that the pro series’ schedule allows you to plan your live music experiences, not only with us, but also with our esteemed partners, the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra and the Brandon Chamber Players. You are also welcome to attend the School of Music’s excellent Out of Bounds lecture series, a great opportunity to learn more about music from a range of fascinating perspectives.

I believe you will find this year’s pro series to be a musically rich and diverse season, and I credit my colleagues for their generous assistance and advice. This year, we are proudly showcasing several School of Music faculty, are thrilled to be presenting two former winners of the E-Gré Competition, and are hosting world-class musicians from Canada and the United States. We look forward to presenting another exciting New Music Festival, and to knowing that the annual School of Music Faculty Concert is sure to be another audience favourite.

Please visit with me before or after any of this season’s concerts. We greatly value your support of exemplary live music in our community, and I would be delighted to thank you in person.
