Thunder Bay Symphony Orchestra
The Thunder Bay Symphony Orchestra is one of the most remotely located symphonies in Canada. It’s host city is the smallest in the country to have a full time professional orchestra. Celebrating its 57th season, the TBSO continues to entertain and enrich the lives of Northwestern Ontario residents with thrilling concerts, outreach performances, regional touring, educational programs and concerts, and recordings of both classical and popular music.
The TBSO has evolved and matured over the years, developing a strong sound from its relatively small core of 30 players. Its repertoire includes Canadian compositions, such as the première of Jordan Pal’s Starling and Into the Wonder in 2015, as well as choral works featuring the Thunder Bay Symphony Chorus, which is now in its 42nd year. The TBSO continues to evolve. Because of its isolated geographic location, it is developing a vision that fits the new frontier; a vision that embraces and celebrates multiple cultures of our country: Indigenous, francophone, European and world cultures that live together in Ontario’s vast northern wilderness.
