Thunder Bay Symphony Orchestra Performs in Hospital

It was a musical lunch hour for those in the cafeteria of the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre on Tuesday, as members of Thunder Bay Symphony Orchestra came to visit the hospital to play classical music. Some members even came dressed to match the location – the 9 members of the wind ensemble were dressed in surgery bonnets and performed for the audience composed of doctors & nurses, patients, and their watchers.

According to Colleen Gibson, who started playing the oboe when she was in the 9th grade, playing in public is the orchestra’s way of thanking the city for all their support. They knew those who worked in the hospital rarely got a change to see them perform, so she was more than happy to give them that opportunity. Gibson has played her instrument for 27 years now.

Thunder Bay District Hospital’s director of communications, Don Edwards, comments that over 4,000 people —many of whom came all the way to the hospital just to watch the orchestra perform—were in attendance on Tuesday. He said the mini-concert—if you can still call it that, with the big audience and all—was successful, and that he saw many enjoying the performance.

The Thunder Bay Symphony Orchestra will have a full orchestra concert at the Lakehead University on Friday noon.
