15,000 Western alumni, beautiful fall weather, a Mustangs triumph over the Toronto Varsity Blues on the football field, and more than 30 events campus-wide combined to make Homecoming 2014 a weekend to remember.
Music alumni, faculty, staff and students attended a number of events over the weekend. On Friday we celebrated with Cameron Porter, BMus ’80, and Raymond Tizzard, BMus ’77, MMus ’82, as they received the Don Wright Faculty of Music Wall of Fame Awards. Family, friends and colleagues were on hand to applaud their achievements. Saturday brought over 70 musicians together to sing and play at our first ever Homecoming Concert – one which we hope builds into a Music Homecoming tradition. And, on Sunday we once again opened our doors to a cross-faculty panel event hosted by CBC’s Paul Kennedy, who led a discussion that explored the value of a university degree.

Before you know it, Western’s 2015 Homecoming Weekend will be here. Please mark your calendar for September 24 – 27, 2015. We hope you can join us! We will once again host an alumni band and choir and will be calling the newly renovated and expanded Music Building home.
