A concert that will take you on a musical journey through some of mankind’s most momentous moments

The full North Bay symphony Orchestra.

Orchestras have reflected and motivated stories through millions of pieces of music for over 300 years. 

"Music speaks to us on a level deeper than words and being part of a live orchestra performance is not only an experience of sound, but also of sight and emotion.  Let the North Bay Symphony, and narrator and composer Luc Martin, take you on a journey through some of history’s most significant music in “Symphony Storyteller” on Sunday, February 26 at 2:30pm at North Bay’s Capitol Centre says a news release from the group.

Bach’s “Air on a G String”, Mozart’s First Symphony, written at only 8 years old; Beethoven’s “Eroica” Symphony #3, written in honour of Napoleon Buonaparte and the new ideals he initially stood for, but was permanently rededicated “in memory of a heroic man” by Beethoven in a fit of anger when Napoleon declared himself emperor; and film music composer John Williams’s poignant violin solo from Schindler’s List join pieces by Vivaldi, Shostakovich, and Brahms in a concert that will take you on a musical journey through some of mankind’s most momentous moments.  And together, we will celebrate four decades of orchestral music played in our own community – performed by our own North Bay musicians – with the world premiere of Luc Martin’s “Towards Silver Linings”, written in honour of the NBSO’s 40th Anniversary.

Composer Luc Martin was born to a musical family in eastern Ontario and studied music and composition at the University of Ottawa.  His music is well received by audiences and has been performed across Canada and the United States. 

Luc currently lives in Timmins where he composes and plays double bass with the Timmins Symphony and teaches art and music.
