Join TUMS for a Winter Concert


The Trent University Music Society is winding down for the semester, and we’re celebrating with our annual winter concert this Friday evening.

If you’re in the mood for something musical, stop by Wenjack Theatre on November 28 to see what our bands and choirs have been working on this year. Like most TUMS events, it’s completely free. Here’s a rundown of what to look forward to for this festive affair:

The music will begin at 7pm. First up is our concert choir, which will sing a few choral tunes to kick off the evening. Up next, we have a very special performance from our jazz band. In a new experiment this year, we’ve joined forces with the highly esteemed Kawartha Jazz Ensemble. This should be a real treat and is a performance you won’t want to miss.

After those guys jazz up the evening, we’ll take a refreshment break. If this hasn’t already persuaded you to come out, you should know that it’s a TUMS tradition to provide homemade cookies and other holiday snacks at our winter concert. I reiterate, there will be homemade cookies, and they will be free.

Following our cookie break, you can then enjoy a performance from our concert band, which will be performing some popular film scores that I’m sure you’ll recognize.

Finally, the madrigal choir, Trent’s oldest musical group, will be doing a throwback to the 16th century to finish off the evening. It’s not often you get to listen to madrigals, so don’t pass this up!

Our hard-working bands and choirs have been practicing diligently all semester, and we’re excited to put on a great show this Friday. Everyone is welcome to attend, so come on out for a night of good music and good company. Hope to see you there!
