Celebrating a season full of distinguished musicians and memorable music

Greg Gatien

I am certain that music is important. It has a unique capacity to enrich our lives. Among its many properties is its ability to bring people together. It lifts our spirits, evokes memories, marks the passage of time, forms the core of our celebrations, and conveys feelings that cannot otherwise be expressed. It is also a rich and powerful form of education—it combines the nuance of languages, the patterns and properties of mathematics, the complexities of literature, and the coordination and dexterity of sports or dance. Western Manitoba is a vibrant musical community, the heart of which is Brandon University’s School of Music: a centre of teaching and learning and a venue for all to hear, and enjoy, a wide range of music.

With this in mind, I invite you to this year’s pro series. Once again, we have assembled an exciting and diverse assortment of world-class talent. We are proud to present some of Canada’s top musicians, from the Western Art Music and Jazz traditions. This year’s pro series hosts established talent, including members of our faculty, as well as emerging artists who will be changing the cultural landscape for decades to come. Please note that one of our concerts will be off-campus, in order to accommodate its scope, and that two affiliated concerts are happening outside of our normal Tuesday schedule.

In the spirit of the social nature of music, I look forward to welcoming you into the music building and spending time getting to know you.

With very best wishes,

Greg Gatien
