Dylan sits down with a pivotal person in his life, his junior high band teacher, Mr. Peter Gallant. Join them as they discuss Peter’s path, his 33 years as the band teacher at Summerside Intermediate, his work with technology in music education, how the word “retirement” means something very different in his busy life and much more!


This October we feature composer, Dong-In Danny Choi and his piece, Remembrance, performed by the University of British Columbia Symphonic Wind Ensemble, conducted by Lauren Visel. This recording was part of UBC's annual Composers reading session, where student composers and conductors collaborate to create new Canadian band works.
