Our Next Session:

7:00 PM EDT (Eastern Daylight Savings Time)

Music is Medicine
and other lessons learned on the journey toward understanding and reconciliation through shared music

with Robert Buckley, Doug Macaulay, & Bob Baker

The Gathering Of Eagles commission created an opportunity through music to bring together hundreds people and reach out to thousands more. The collaboration between Douglas Macaulay and his WVYB Symphonic Band, Squamish Nation Elder and Cultural Advisor Bob Baker and Canadian composer Robert Buckley has resulted in three works for senior concert band and two for junior concert band. In this session, we will discuss the process taken, the guiding principles, the many lessons learned along the way and the extreme joy of performing the world premier at the Squamish Nation's Chief Joe Mathias Centre for the elders, a hereditary Chief and people from all walks of life. 

Once you complete the registration, you will receive the Zoom Link.
Thank you to the Manitoba Band Association for hosting this zoom event.
