Biography / History

Town & Gown Concerts series ran from 1969-[1979], providing a unique and distinguished contribution to the musical life of the city of Peterborough and of Trent University, both artistically and in terms of audience support. A broad spectrum of musicians were presented, both professional and amateur, local and out-of-town. The programmes were varied, and the music ranged from baroque and classical to romantic and modern, including contemporary folk. Town & Gown Concerts reported to Trent University's Vice President Academic and the University provided some of the financial support for the series. Professor Joseph Wearing of Trent University was the first chairman of Town & Gown Concerts, followed by Professor Jim Henniger.
