Presenting a season full of distinguished musicians and memorable music

Greg Gatien 2012

Over the past eighteen years, Brandon University’s School of Music has presented almost 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 here at the School of Music and an incredible array of other internationally renowned artists.

This year’s program marks—for the most part—the pro series’ return to Tuesday nights. We hope that this makes it easier for you to plan your live music experiences through the year, and also enjoy the programming of our esteemed partners, the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra and the Brandon Chamber Players. Their season schedules are included for your

I believe you will find this year’s pro series to be musically rich and diverse, and I thank my colleagues for their generous assistance in organizing the 2016-17 season. This year, we are proudly showcasing several School of Music faculty, are thrilled to be presenting an alumna (who also teaches in our Music Education program), and are hosting world-class musicians from Canada, the United States, and the United Kingdom. Our annual New Music Festival will feature BU’s current Stanley Knowles Distinguished Visiting Professor, the Festival’s Artistic Director, and a quartet of electric guitars. And two staples of the pro series, the presentation of the 2016 E-Gré Competition winner and the School of Music Faculty
Concert, are always audience favourites.

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