About Us

We are Musicians@Ryerson, a group of about 50 Ryerson students, community members, Toronto residents, and artists representing and planning events for the local Ryerson-Toronto music community. We host events, socials, and initiatives to help create community for anyone who likes or plays music.

Musicians@Ryerson’s 6th Annual Battle of the Bands is one of Ryerson’s largest concerts every year. Our event aims to help up-an-coming Ryerson and local bands grow musically and provides a space for everyone to jam out to some great local music!
