Doris Dungan began her flute studies at the age of seven, first with her father and then in Philadelphia with Frank Versaci until high school graduation. Subsequent to earning B. Mus. and M. Mus. Degrees from the University of Michigan where she studied with Keith Bryan, Doris was recruited to teach flute as Assistant Professor at the University of Southern Mississippi, where she was honoured with the Excellence in Teaching Award.
During her years in Mississippi, she was active in the region performing extensively as principal flutist of orchestras in three states, and touring the region with the Southern Arts Baroque Trio, presenting recitals and appearing as soloist with various ensembles.
Since moving to Thunder Bay in 1980, Doris has held the position of section flute with the Thunder Bay Symphony Orchestra. She has been featured as flute or piccolo soloist on each of the TBSO’s subscription series, has been heard nationally in recital on CBC radio, and regularly performs with Consortium Aurora Borealis, Southampton Chamber Music Society, Tamarack Wind Quintet and Musically Inclined. In addition, Doris teaches flute both at Lakehead University and privately.
Violinist Madonna Lee joined the TBSO in 1993. She holds a Bachelor of Music Degree in Performance from Wilfrid Laurier University/University of Toronto, a Licentiate Performance Diploma from the Royal Conservatory of Music, and a Bachelor of Education from Lakehead University.
In addition to playing with the TBSO, Madonna is a Contract Lecturer for the Department of Music at Lakehead University, a position she has held since 2002, and is a supply Primary/Junior teacher with the Thunder Bay Catholic District School Board.
Madonna plays a variety of music and has enjoyed fiddling with two local bands, the Knackers and Accordion with Strings Attached.
Her biggest joys are her four daughters and her wood-working, bus-driving husband.
Cellist Mary Welby is a graduate of the Royal Conservatory of Music/ Toronto(A.R.C.T.performance Gold Medal for Canada), the University of Arizona(Bach. of Arts in Performance) and Orchestral Training Program/Toronto, where she studied with Principal cellists Marcus Adeney and Daniel Domb(Toronto), Lorne Munroe(New York),and Ron Leonard(Los Angeles). After performing at festivals in Banff, Florida, Colorado and Vermont, Mary joined the Thunder Bay Symphony and appeared often with Consortium Aurora Borealis.
Currently Mary freelances in Thunder Bay and Toronto. She has been delighted to perform many local groups including Magnus Theatre as the muse of Leonard Cohen,recording a Juno-nominated CD with"Jake", and trio Women in Black.
