Our guest artist from Oct 21, Melody Thomas, had some kind words to say about our area and the orchestra. We wanted to share those with you here.
My partner Andy and I spent a lovely day on the Bruce Peninsula on Sunday after the concert. I wanted to say thank you so much to Maestro Koh and David Adair for such a wonderful experience singing with the Georgian Bay Symphony. It is very clear that the GBS musicians are a hard-working and incredibly kind-hearted bunch. I felt so incredibly welcome and taken care of during my stay. The audience members that I got to interact with were also an extremely supportive, friendly crowd. You clearly have a beautiful arts community in Owen Sound!
Many thanks for your support and hard work, both during Les oiseaux and in the concert as a whole. I heard a HUGE difference between the sounds the orchestra was making Wednesday night and the final product at the concert - you all worked so hard! Many thanks also to the orchestra members for learning that Entr'acte in Elle a fui at the last minute - I was so very touched.
