Tupper Band

The Tupper Medical School Concert Band  

An old tradition in a new location!

Dalhousie Medical School Tupper Band’s first performance in 1979 began a tradition that will continue on April 14th   when the Band celebrates Dr. Bernard Badley’s 39th year as its conductor in this year’s Spring Concert at the Paul O’Regan Hall in the Halifax Central Library!

The concert features music written for stage and screen as well as some ‘pop’ numbers, a couple of marches and a variety of other tuneful melodies from around the world.

If you like music with great tunes and dynamic rhythms, this is one you shouldn’t miss.

The concert is at 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 14th in the Halifax Central Library. Entrance to the Paul O’Regan Hall at that time is through the Library’s side door on Queen Street.

Admission is $10, with the proceeds going towards the Music-in-Medicine Scholarship Fund (no charge for children and students).

We are in our 38th Year 1979-2017

The band rehearses each Wednesday starting September 6, 2017 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.
