Three major music events are coming together at Brandon University this weekend and early next week, putting on a series of concerts and performances that promise to wow audiences.

The annual E-Gré competition this weekend will be followed by a conference of the Canadian University Music Society, or MusCan, early next week, as well as a simultaneous meeting of the Canadian Network for Musicians’ Health and Wellness (CNMHW).


Less than two weeks away, anticipation is beginning to crescendo for the Brandon University Jazz Festival, which features an artist who took home a Grammy just last month.

The annual musical event brings students, music educators, vaunted performers, and jazz lovers together for three days of excitement at the BU campus.


A pair of Brandon University (BU) School of Music faculty members are collaborating with visiting musicians Tommy Crane and Thom Gill for an evening of genre-bending electronic folk this week.

The Brandon Chamber Players present Dance Music For All Occasions, by Tommy Crane on Saturday, Jan. 27 at 7:30 p.m., in BU’s Kinsmen Rehearsal Hall.


The 18th annual Da Capo Conference for music educators is returning to Brandon University on Saturday, Jan. 20.

The all-day workshop of professional development opportunities for pre-service and current music educators is organized by BUSMEA, the Brandon University Student Music Educators Association, who are music education students creating professional development opportunities through workshops and other related events.

“BUSMEA is excited to welcome Alexis Silver as the keynote speaker for this year’s conference, who will present a session titled The Value of Teaching with Values,” said Abby Petersen, President of BUSMEA.
