Thunder Bay Symphony Orchestra
The Thunder Bay Symphony Orchestra is proud to be a part of the cultural fabric of Thunder Bay, celebrating our 58th anniversary season. Though classical music performances date back to 1903 and the Port Arthur Philharmonic Society, the Lakehead Symphony (as we were once called) was not officially formed until 1961. Today, we are the largest fully professional arts group in the city and the only professional orchestra between Toronto and Winnipeg. The gifted artists of the TBSO perform nearly 50 concerts annually, a wealth of musical gems and wonderful new sounds, with flawless virtuosity and the power that can only be experienced live.
Zachary Lucky’s ‘Everywhere A Man Can Be’ is a rare album that transcends the boundaries of folk
and country, simply by seeking the truth. Already hailed as a master storyteller by outlets ranging from No Depression to Exclaim!, Lucky’s new nine-song collection is his most powerful statement to date, with his sonic palette given a wide range of new colours through contributions from some notable Canadian indie rock names, led by producer and pedal steel virtuoso Aaron Goldstein.
Resonant, acoustic chamber folk with an otherworldly edge, and a lyric presence that cuts deep. Prism-clear vocals and strings; A combination of vocal agility and power. Raine’s new album, Night Sky, tips between the earthly and the otherworldly; it is anchored in relatable lived experience, while reaching into the space just beyond, thinning the veil between here and there, affording safe passage to the rough and beautiful places.
