Carleton University’s School for Studies in Art & Culture (Music) is proud to host this gala concert in celebration of its 50th anniversary (1967-2017). The program, featuring Carleton Alumna and Artist-in-Residence Kellylee Evans and the launch of her newest CD (“COME ON!”), will be opened by an all-star lineup of Carleton’s jazz students, alumni and Carleton-affiliated jazz artists, including Petr Cancura, Roddy Ellias, John Geggie, MacKenzie and Ben Di Millo, Lucia Villeneuve, Garrett Warner, Kelsey Hayes, The Chocolate Hot Pockets, The Dennis Bass Quartet, Jenny and the Jazzmen and Funktion Avenue. Join us for the celebration!
Carleton University Music Department has existed since 1967, and its performance program was introduced in 1975. In 1991, the School for Studies in Art and Culture – of which Music is a division, together with Art History and Film Studies – was formed. SSAC/Music currently offers a wide range of innovative courses and programs, including the Honours Bachelor of Music, Honours B.A. (Music) and B.A. General (Music) degrees, the Certificate in Carillon Studies, and the M.A. in Music and Culture. Carleton’s Bachelor of Music Program was one of the first on the continent to offer performance degrees to students studying a broad range of musical styles, including classical, jazz, Celtic, pop, rock, folk, carillon, singer-songwriter and world musics.
