YOU dance and the Thunder Bay Symphony Orchestra offer educational, interactive performances for elementary students. Apprentice dancers from the National Ballet of Canada will join the TBSO, conducted by Resident Conductor Daniel Bartholomew-Poyser, for four live performances at the Thunder Bay Community Auditorium.
The TBSOpened program allows students and other visitors to experience an open dress rehearsal, observing how a first-class orchestra puts together a first-class concert.
Designed to bring the concert hall to your school, the Musicians in the Classroom project brings the TBSO right to your school! Les presentations se feront aussi en français.
What does a conductor do? How does an orchestra behind the scenes? These questions and more are answered when one of the TBSO’s very own conductors visits your classroom. Les presentations se feront aussi en français.
The TBSO Youth Ambassadors are a group of students, hand-picked by their schools, to represent their school as part of a Student Board that advises the TBSO on its student educational initiatives and helps us stay in touch with the needs of today’s youth at a grassroots level.
Each year the TBSO performs musical masterworks that are available, through transcription, for performance by your band.
