Your gift makes a difference! By investing in the arts, you strengthen your community. 

The TBSO has been part of the community of Thunder Bay for over 60 years! The last two years have been challenging for us all and the TBSO is so proud to be here, ensuring our community emerges more vibrant than ever. It takes more than a composer or a conductor and musicians to bring the music to life. It takes someone to hear it, and love it, and share it. It takes YOU! 

 3 Reasons to Give:

1) The TBSO is the only full-time professional orchestra in Northwestern Ontario. We present music to nearly 20,000 Canadians, some of which would never otherwise have the opportunity to see a live orchestra.

2) The TBSO reaches over 7500 students per year, providing educational programming and nurturing the next generation’s love of music.

3) The TBSO connects communities and cultures through music, opening dialogues for reconciliation and trust.

Join us in bringing music back into our lives.

Join us for Season 2021/22

The long-awaited reunion between the Thunder Bay Symphony Orchestra and its patrons is scheduled for October 21, 2021. Tickets for our first five concerts of Season 60 are one sale now.

See concert descriptions HERE.

After an unexpectedly unique last season, we are proud to be moving forward with full-orchestra performances in our 2021/22 season. This diamond anniversary speaks to the resilience of the orchestra and illustrates the prominent role we play in the arts culture of the Thunder Bay region. TBSO staff, board, and musicians are committed to sharing the love and power of music with our patrons. 

As in-person performances begin, we will work closely with the Thunder Bay District Health Unit and follow Public Health guidelines to keep our audience and musicians safe. You can learn more about the safety guidelines we have in place for our concerts HERE.
