Description:

The Canadian Music Centre and the School of Creative Arts at the University of Windsor collaborate to present a reading session of contemporary Canadian compositions for concert band. We will present six works that have been written for beginner and intermediate level ensembles, and the composers will be present to share insights into their works.

Conductors, educators, and other members of the band community interested in Canadian repertoire will enjoy the chance to connect and discuss the music. We will host a short reception following the reading.
