A month of music at Douglas

Is November anyone’s favourite month? Didn’t think so. As the days get shorter and the rain gets colder, the 11th month is the perfect excuse to curl up with a blanket and the last five seasons of Breaking Bad.

Until now, that is.

Enticing you out into the wet—if only briefly—Douglas College is putting on four concerts at the end of this month that will have you remembering that there are such things as light and colour and goodness in the world. The first, Douglas College Choirs in Concert (Nov. 23, 7:30 p.m.), features the Douglas College Choral Society, Chorus and Chorale singing Vivaldi’s Gloria and shorter works by Bach, Brahms, William Byrd, Edvard Grieg and others. Jazz lovers won’t want to miss An Evening of Jazz (Nov. 26, 7:30 p.m.), featuring the Douglas College Night Band and Dues Band playing Latin, swing, modern rock, salsa and more. Music for Winds, Brass and Percussion (Nov. 28, 7:30 p.m.) showcases the Douglas College Concert Band and Percussion Ensemble, who will perform Renaissance-inspired works, both old and new, Mexican folk songs, “street beat” style percussion and more. And rounding out the month is the Student Composition Concert (Nov. 30, 7 p.m.) featuring newly composed works by Douglas College students.

All concerts take place in the Laura C. Muir Performing Arts Theatre, fourth floor, Douglas College, 700 Royal Ave. Admission for Choirs in Concert: general $15; seniors $10; students free. All other concerts are free. For more information see douglascollege.ca/visitors/artsevents.
