People often ask me: what’s it like playing in a major orchestra?

Having the privilege to play great music with great players on a daily basis is an experience that few will have. 

Playing in a symphony orchestra surrounded by great players playing great music is, well,  just unbelievable. There are no words for it.  Just gotta do it.

I wish you could all know what it is like to sit onstage while the TSO is playing Mahler 1.

“Over the past 25 years, Mr. Bourque has been an integral part of the woodwind section (of the TSO) and his agility of playing and warmth of sound are exemplary. His dedication to the Toronto Symphony and the art of music-making have made him a wonderful colleague."
