Looking for a festive, musical way to kick off the winter break? Then come check out this concert, featuring the UTSC Alumni and Community Concert Band. They will be performing a number of highly entertaining pieces, as well as some of your favourite holiday classics.

Tickets are pay-what-you-can!


Frosh Band!

Written by ainsley. Posted in Events

2013-08 Frosh Band WebsiteOn Thursday, August 29th @ 5:00 PM, we’ll be holding an event for all our new and returning wind instrumentalists on campus!  Come out and spend a few hours sight-reading easy & cheesy concert band music while chatting and doing what we do best — snacking!   After you sign-up, we’ll email you with details about the event (including instrument drop-off, in case if you’re attending Orientation Week), and copies of the music we’ll be playing.  Be prepared to bring your instrument and some food for sharing.  It’ll be a fun time, and a great way to get a taste of UTSC Music!  Want to come?  Sign up here:


Curious as to what we’re going to play?  We’ll be going back to our “roots” with some Alumni Band classics — Go West and Fireflies.   We’ll flash back to our 15 minutes of fame from Breakfast Television earlier this summer, with a little Forget You.   And of course, we can’t have an “easy & cheesy” band night without some Robert W. Smith, so we’ll hit up Into The Storm.  And then who knows?  Pirates of the Caribbean? English Folk Song Suite? Some new stuff?  We’ll see what we’re in the mood for!

See you there!
