Let the Deed Show: Remastered version of Fleming College’s official song released for 50th anniversary




Peterborough ON – (Sept. 14, 2017) – Let the Deed Show, Fleming College’s official song that was commissioned for the College’s 25th anniversary, has been remastered and updated for Fleming’s 50th.

The song details the life of Sir Sandford Fleming, the College’s namesake, and his contributions to society. Written by local performer Danny Bronson, Bronson returned to the studio recently with some of the finest studio musicians in Canada to record the new rendition of the song.

Recorded at Haggarty Studios in Peterborough, Bronson has breathed new life into the classic song. You can listen to, and view the video for, the updated track here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=toRl89B6Hxk&feature=youtu.be.

Bronson performs Let the Deed Show every year at all of Fleming College’s convocation ceremonies at Frost and Sutherland campuses.

“Danny’s an incredibly talented songwriter, vocalist and musician and we are lucky to have had him so closely linked to the college for so long. His lyrics and melody combine to capture the spirit and perseverance of Sir Sandford Fleming and Let the Deed Show ensures a rousing close to each of our convocation ceremonies. It’s a fantastic tribute to our namesake and a memorable send-off for our graduates. We hope it provides inspiration for them to pursue a path of perseverance and innovation,” said Drew Van Parys, Executive Director of Marketing and Advancement.

Danny, along with students, alumni and employees will be in attendance at the college’s Sutherland Campus 50th Anniversary celebration on Sept. 22 from 3-7 p.m. The public is welcome to join the celebration.
