Western University Symphonic Band

The Western University Symphonic Band begins their concert season with works that cross a wide emotional spectrum, and features the world premiere of a new work by Canadian composer Bill Thomas. This commission, inspired by Inuit culture, was made possible through the generous support of Western University’s Canada 150 Initiative. Other Canadian repertoire on the program includes Paul Suchan’s deeply emotional work The Colours and Contrasts of Grief, and Scott Irvines’s Hannaford Overture.

This is a free concert. No ticket purchase or reservation required. Simply attend and enjoy!

All 12:30 p.m. concerts at the Don Wright Faculty of Music conclude no later than 1:20 p.m., making it the perfect way to spend your lunch hour.
