Physician celebrates 40 years as director of Dalhousie Medical School’s Tupper Band
In 1979 a group of Dalhousie medical students, faculty members and healthcare professionals embarked on a venture that no Canadian medical school had previously attempted – they decided to form a concert band. From those earliest days, the Band been directed by Dr. Bernard Badley, a former vice-dean of the Faculty of Medicine and C.E.O. of the Victoria General Hospital. This year’s Spring Concert celebrates his 40 years service as the Band’s conductor.
We are in our 40th Season 1979-2019
The band rehearses each Wednesday starting September 4, 2019 in the Sir Charles Tupper Building at Dalhousie University. We start at 5:00 p.m. and finish promptly at 6:15 p.m.
Membership is open to all students, faculty and staff of the health sciences faculties (Dentistry, Pharmacy, Nursing, Medicine and all other medical sciences programs).
There are no auditions, but if you are interested in joining the band or need further information please send an e-mail message to Dr. Bernard Badley indicating the instrument you play and briefly outlining your previous band experience.
