Place Des Arts du Grand Sudbury

The Sudbury Symphony Orchestra would like to invite members of the Media and the Public for a welcoming Media Event and Social at the Bistro at Place Des Arts du Grande Sudbury.  Join City of Greater Sudbury Mayor Paul Lefebvre, Councillor Deb McIntosh and other local dignitaries as we welcome Composer, and the newly appointed Artistic and Executive Director Bill to Sudbury.

Bill, his wife and two daughters will make Sudbury their home in the 2024-25 season and beyond.   A graduate of the Curtis Institute of Music and the University of Toronto Bill is hailed as one of Canada’s most compelling and versatile young artists for his work with orchestras across Canada. Bill will continue to serve as Music Director of the Stratford Symphony Orchestra where he was part of a team that brought the orchestra through COVID and built this Orchestra back to capacity audiences and balanced books.

The highlights of Bill’s career so far are numerous and include composing and recording the orchestral soundtrack to the feature length film ‘Brotherhood’ in 2020.  An active composer, Bill’s original works and orchestral arrangements can be found on the programs of several orchestras and ensembles throughout Canada, the US and Europe with works broadcast in over 20 countries.
