About TIMMINS SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA

A Northern Ontario cultural icon, the Timmins Symphony Orchestra began in 1979. Our current Music Director & Conductor Matthew Jones celebrates 10 years with us in 2010-2011. The over 50 community players are mentored by a core group of professional musicians who are also teach at the School of Music. The Chorus was formed in 2004 and its membership has grown to upwards of 45 members. A crowd pleaser, the Chorus has performed ambitious works and its Messiah has garnered full houses at its accessible pay-what-you-can performance. The Geoffrey James Lee School of Music began at the local college with a small group of students. Now housed on the top floor of the former Hollinger Gold Mine building, it employs 5 full-time professional teachers who teach over 120 music students each week; individual and ensemble lessons are offered in a range of instruments, plus music theory and Kindermusik. The Timmins Symphony Orchestra's 12 member Board is drawn from the community, orchestra and chorus.
