Thunder Bay, ON – The Thunder Bay Symphony Orchestra (TBSO) announces the following changes:
Thunder Bay’s own Gregory Lewis steps in as soloist for Brahms’ Violin Concerto.
Due to the inclement weather, international soloist Jennifer Koh will be unable to travel to Thunder Bay to perform the Brahms Violin Concerto with the TBSO for the final Masterworks concert of the season.
Symphony patrons will instead have the pleasure of hearing the concerto performed by Thunder Bay’s own Gregory Lewis. He recently completed his undergraduate degree at the University of Manitoba and will be heading to Yale University in the fall to pursue his graduate studies. We heard Gregory Lewis earlier this season during a Classical + Series concert in which he performed a brilliant rendition of Mozart’s Violin Concerto No. 5. When asked if he could perform it again as a replacement for the Brahms, he mentioned that he played the Brahms for his grad school auditions. With less than 36 hours to go before show-time, Gregory Lewis will be stepping in as the soloist for Brahms’ Violin Concerto.
Thursday evening marks the final appearance of Maestro Arthur Post with the Thunder Bay Symphony Orchestra as Music Director at the TBCA. Ouroboros by Juno award-winning composer Jordan Nobles will open this historic concert. Please join us for this celebration!
