Canadian Composer’s Works to be Recorded Before Live Audience

By Kyle Poluyko

The Thunder Bay Symphony Orchestra proudly invites all to be part of a special history making concert event on Tuesday, March 22 as two compositions by Canadian composer Jordan Pal will be recorded live at the Thunder Bay Community Auditorium.

This concert will feature two of Pal’s latest compositions, Starling and Into the Wonder. Into the Wonder was commissioned by the TBSO and premiered March 5, 2015, conducted by Arthur Post. Starling, a triple concerto for solo violin, cello, piano and orchestra, was also commissioned by the TBSO and premiered at the Community Auditorium on March 28, 2013 with the Gryphon Trio, also under the baton of conductor Arthur Post.

Jordan Pal is one of the most frequently performed composers of his generation in Canada and is regarded as one of this country’s most exciting new composers. His compositions have been performed by the Montreal Symphony, Toronto Symphony, Vancouver Symphony, National Arts Centre Orchestra, Quebec Symphony, Gryphon Trio, St. Lawrence String Quartet and many more in the 2014-2015 and 2015-2016 seasons.

The Gryphon Trio, comprised of violinist Annalee Patipatanakoon, cellist Roman Borys and pianist James Parker, has impressed international audiences and the press with its highly refined, dynamic performances, and has firmly established itself as one of the world’s preeminent piano trios.

The TBSO, Jordan Pal, and The Gryphon Trio unite in one amazing concert, recorded before a live audience, at Thunder Bay Community Auditorium on Tuesday, March 22. Tickets at $10. For more information visit or
