You love top-5 lists, right? And you love music, right? We’ve got a great top-5 list where you can hear live music here on campus – keep reading!
1. The Hub tops our list – of course! We have weekly programing, live music, and loads of activities. Plus where else on campus can you hang out with your friends, watch a band, and have an adult beverage all at the same time? If you haven’t already joined, click “like” and follow The Hub on Facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/InTheHub
2. Mount Royal’s Carthy Organis one of those best-kept secrets. You might not even know about it, but you can check it out at regular free organ concerts throughout the year. You’ll find it in the lower level of MRU near the Chaplaincy. Lear more here: http://www.mtroyal.ca/ProgramsCourses/FacultiesSchoolsCentres/TheConservatory/GeneralInformation/cons_organ.htm
3. MRU’s conservatory has regular performances. Check them out in the theatres, or soon in the Bella building. There are regular programs like the Christmas in Song or Morningside Music Bridge program, plus you can also check out the Wyatt Artist in Residence program. Learn more here: http://mtroyal.ca/Conservatory/upcoming.php
4. The Cultural Mosaic Centre on the 3rd floor of Wyckham House has a variety of instruments available for student use, including regular and impromptu jam sessions. There is also a regular drum circle where no prior experience (or skill) is necessary!
5. Join a club or start your own! Maybe the Jam Club or the Rock & Heavier club interest you, or maybe you’d like to start your own? Clubs operate year-round, so you can even plan summertime activities. You might attend a jam session with your sweet new bass, or work together to bring your favourite bands to play a gig in The Hub.
