Humber’s Music program kicked off its Wednesday Concert Series, and  asks people to come for free to the Lakeshore campus show every week.

The concert series will showcase students and faculty of the program, as well as performances by special guests. With such a wide variety of talent, the School of Creative and Performing Arts said the concert series will offer many musical stylings, from Indian classical all the way to contemporary jazz.

“It’s a great opportunity to hear faculty perform,” said Andrew Scott, director of the Bachelor of Music program. At the Lakeshore campus auditorium, “there are 580 seats and we would love to see them filled.”

The Pat LaBarbera Quartet  performed on Oct. 1, and students had a chance to see what their professors do best, making music. LaBarbera has worked with many successful musicians and is known as one of the best saxophonists around.

“We are so fortunate to have him at Humber,” said Scott.

The series gives students and faculty a chance to see their peers doing what they love, and it allows performers to get their music out and in the ears of hundreds of students and staff.

The concerts will be held most Wednesdays at Lakeshore campus auditorium. Upcoming performances include, Brad Klumps gospel choir who are set to perform alongside The Pat LaBarbera Coltrane Tribute Ensemble on Oct. 8., and special guest Donny McCaslin will appear on Oct. 15.
