Thunder Bay – ENTERTAINMENT – After a brief but thorough renegotiation process, TBSO President Linda Penner and TBSO Music Director Paul Haas are pleased to announce the renewal and extension of his contract with the Thunder Bay Symphony for the next four years.

“We couldn’t be more delighted to have Paul for another four years,” says Penner. “Not only will the community and our audiences have the opportunity to enjoy the full range of what he brings to our stage, but it gives the orchestra greater stability both artistically and operationally over the next few years.”

“When I came to Thunder Bay almost three years ago I was excited by the challenges,” says Haas. “After Arthur Post left there was a period of time when the orchestra was without a music director, so it was somewhat adrift artistically. The orchestra also faced financial challenges. I also learned that the social and cultural dynamics of the community were changing. It was an interesting time to be here.” He continues. “Since then we’ve added annual Indigenous concerts to our schedule, we’ve upped our educational program, we’ve created new repertoire to reflect our unique geographic location in the world, and we’ve reached out to our loyal patrons and new audiences.
