The Thunder Bay Conservatory of Music (TBCM) is a not-for-profit charitable organization whose mission is to offer educational musical programming to the community of Thunder Bay and surrounding areas.


The Thunder Bay Conservatory of Music currently offers the following programmes:

  • Children’s Choir  Choral singing is a great way to have fun while developing singing skills, group performance skills, and other skills foundational to all branches of musicianship. Details of choral events being planned for the 2018/2019 season will be posted when available. In the mean time, feel free to contact us to express an interest.

  • Student Recitals provide an opportunity for students of Thunder Bay area music teachers to gain experience and build confidence performing in front of an audience.

  • Group Classes provide an opportunity for young string students to learn the joys of playing with others as part of a musical team.

  • Community Orchestra provides a venue for adults who play orchestral instruments non-professionally to get together to rehearse and to perform.

  • Summer Strings provides a week of fun and skills-development for young string students at various levels.

Support Us

There is a need for high-level summer music programming in Thunder Bay. Serious music students need to keep their skill sharp, and continue to take lessons through the summer months, often travelling to far- away places like Domaine Forget in Charlevoix, Quebec, or the Banff Centre in Alberta for much-needed training with prestigious guest teachers. But the travel, accommodation, and fees of these summer festivals are out of reach for many families.

Your donation can help support the flights and fees of our guest string quartet, to support us in bringing a high-level summer string festival right here where the students need it. For more information, or to make a donation, please have a look at our donation letter.
