The Georgian Bay Symphony is your community orchestra serving Owen Sound and area since 1972. The GBS consists of over 55 volunteer players and a small core group of professionals. John Barnum, Music Director/Conductor provided audiences with very memorable concerts.
The members of the GBS come from all over Grey and Bruce counties and so does our audience. The Symphony performs five main concerts a season at the OSCVI Regional Auditorium in Owen Sound as well as several chamber concerts and special events in various locations.
The GBS also supports a Youth Orchestra with over 40 members ranging in age from 8 to 18. It is part of our mandate to enhance musical education in our area as well as increase appreciation for classical music in young and old. The Youth Orchestra is conducted by Richard Mascall.
