    Mount Allison welcomes Jess Gillam, saxophonist and host of BBC‘s This Classical Life, as the 2023-24 Bragg Artist-in-Residence from March 5-8.

Her residency will include a full schedule of student workshops and class visits, a master class, public talks, and concludes with a concert with pianist Tom Weaver.

“In addition to being one of today’s finest saxophonists, Jess is a well-known broadcaster and presenter and is passionate about contemporary music and the importance of music in today’s world. I know her residency will be an invaluable experience for the department.” — Dr. Stephen Runge @mountallisonmusic 


The Bragg Artist-in-Residence program was created in 2017 thanks to the generosity of John and Judy Bragg.

The public concert — a recital of works for saxophone and piano by Jess Gillam and Tom Weaver — is Friday, March 8, at 7:30 p.m. in Brunton Auditorium.
    Modern languages and literatures student Claire Armstrong travelled to Japan as part of Kakehashi Project — one of 10 Canadian students selected to participate.
Derived from the Japanese word for “bridge,” the Kakehashi Project aims to cultivate lasting intercultural connections through global exchanges. It is facilitated and funded by Japan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
Armstrong was nominated by lecturer Akiko Yoshizawa after participating in the Atlantic Canada Japanese Contest (ACJSC) last March.
“I’ve always been a really shy person, so public speaking never really appealed to me, but my professor, Akiko Yoshizawa, really pushed me to do it and with her support, that anxiety turned into adrenalin. I saw it as an opportunity to improve my Japanese outside the classroom and it was a really good experience.”
    Congratulations to Commerce students Matheus Crepaldi, Alysha Walker, and Jayden Belanger who recently took home second place at the Business Administration Undergraduate Society (BAUS) Case Competition at UNB.

At the end of each academic year, the university community recognizes the contributions and achievements of our graduating students during our annual Last Lecture.
