TBSO to perform here tomorrow

The Townshend Theatre will welcome the first professional orchestra to play on its stage tomorrow night as an extra concert brought in by tour de Fort.
The Thunder Bay Symphony Orchestra is slated to perform at 7:30 p.m. and if you haven’t got a ticket, there’s still time, said Wanda Botsford, publicity co-ordinator for tour de Fort.
“Yes, there are still tickets left and they will be available at the door [tomorrow night],” she noted Tuesday, adding seating will be on a “first come, first serve” basis.
Tickets cost $20 for adults and $10 for students.
“We’ve had a lot of positive comments from people who say the TBSO is incredible to listen to,” added Botsford, noting the symphony will combine classical and popular music into their performance.
“We like to support the TBSO. After all, they are the symphony of the northwest,” echoed tour de Fort president Wendy Brunetta.
In fact, as a show of their support, tour de Fort will donate the proceeds from tomorrow night’s concert back to the TBSO.
Botsford also said exposing the district to a wider diversity of music was an important focus of tour de Fort.
“We really try to bring in a variety of different types of music to try to please people from all sectors,” she stressed.
The next performance in the tour de Fort season is slated Feb. 11 when Magnus Theatre takes to stage here (open to passport holders only).
Then “Farmers’ Daughter,” a country and western trio, is slated to perform Feb. 16 as another extra concert listing.
