Celebrating 50 years with music and lights
Downtown Toronto was lit up in Humber blue and gold on January 17, 2018 as the College celebrated the golden anniversary with a concert featuring some of North America's finest musicians.
The iconic TORONTO sign in Nathan Phillips Square and the CN Tower had Humber College pride on full display.
The Humber Hawk helped mark the 50-year milestone by handing out popcorn and posing for photos in the Square. A number of politicians, including Toronto Mayor John Tory and James Maloney, Member of Parliament for Etobicoke-Lakeshore, stopped by to celebrate with the College. #Humber50 trended on Twitter for several hours and the anniversary also received airtime on Breakfast Television, CBC News, CTV News and CP24.
The day was capped off with a jazz concert headlined by Kurt Elling, Rik Emmett, Laila Biali, Rich Brown’s band “rinsethealgorithm”, and Humber’s faculty big band directed by Denny Christianson, featuring Pat LaBarbera and Al Kay.
