Up for a Juno

The Thunder Bay Symphony Orchestra’s Into the Wonder album was released on Nov. 3, 2017.

Thunder Bay will be represented at the Juno Awards once again this year.

The Thunder Bay Symphony Orchestra has been nominated in the Classical Album of the Year category for their Into the Wonder recording that was released last year.

The project began in 2012, and took four years to complete, with its official release on Nov. 3, 2017.

The music was entirely composed by Jordan Pal. The recording features Canadian group Gryphon Trio playing with the TBSO.

“It’s been an exhilarating experience performing and recording the music of Jordan Pal,” said past TBSO music director Arthur Post in a news release.

Post incubated the project and led the orchestra through the recordings.

“From my first encounter, I was attracted to his music’s compositional integrity,” said Post. “Here was new music animated by logical and natural progressions, music that embraced traditional tonality, pulse and expression, while displaying a distinctly 21st century sonic brilliance.”
