TORONTO WIND ORCHESTRA

Toronto Wind Orchestra was founded in 1994 by Dr Mark Hopkins, assisted by Tony Gomes, with a mission to give professional performances of rare and unusual wind repertoire. In 1999 Tony Gomes assumed the position of Music Director of the ensemble. Toronto Wind Orchestra includes some of Toronto’s finest freelance performers who work in musical theatre, orchestras and the many chamber ensembles that make the Toronto music scene so vibrant and exciting. The Toronto Wind Orchestra has given Toronto premières of at least a dozen major works, and revived the performance of several masterpieces. Since its inception, Canadian music has been central to Toronto Wind Orchestra programming. Over the past dozen years, Toronto Wind Orchestra concerts have included Canadian wind ensemble pieces such as Allan Bell’s From a Chaos to the Birth of a Dancing Star, Phil Nimmons’ Riverscape, Michael Colgrass’ Old Churches, Oscar Peterson’s Place St. Henri, and John Hawkins’ Clarinet Concerto. The Toronto Wind Orchestra has performed under the direction of Denise Grant, Paula Holcomb, Donald Hunsberger, Jeffrey Reynolds, Tania Miller and Glenn Price.
