Members of Glasgow Dental Big Band and senior staff pose with CD

In 2010, Pamela Kent (Class of 2013) established the ‘Dental Panto Band’ which has since provided the live music to accompany the annual dental student Christmas pantomimes. By 2014, under the baton of Callum Wemyss (Class of 2015) this had expanded to a 20-strong orchestra called the Glasgow Dental School Big Band.

In June 2015, at Jeremy Bagg’s request, the band agreed to play a concert at the Glasgow University Union in aid of the Dental Appeal (www.gla.ac.uk/dentalappeal ). The concert was a great success and was professionally recorded. A CD which contains a number of the tunes and songs that the band and soloists performed that evening has just been released with all donations going to the Dental Appeal. Copies will be available at many dental events over the next few months, so if you missed the concert, or just want to re-live it, this is your chance!
