Tupper Band

The Tupper Band Annual Christimas Concert

Dalhousie Medical School’s TUPPER CONCERT BAND is comprised of students, staff and faculty members of Dalhousie’s faculties of Medicine and Health Sciences, together with practicing and retired health professionals and community members who provide the continuity that is needed as student members progress along the pathway to becoming the health professionals of tomorrow.  

Dr. Bernard Badley has been the Band’s conductor since it was formed in 1979. He will direct the band as it leads the audience in singing well-loved songs and carols and plays a variety of other seasonal favourites, many of which are set in unfamiliar (but attractive) arrangements.

The Tupper Band’s guests for the evening, the Dalhousie Health Professions Chorale, will present their own numbers and will join with the band in a festival of Christmas songs.
