With his appointment as Music Director of the Thunder Bay Symphony Orchestra, Geoffrey Moull returned to North America from Europe in 2000. An increasing artistic reputation built solidly on audience success has seen the ensemble become one of the best regional orchestras in Canada. Under the direction of Mr. Moull, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation now broadcasts the TBSO regularly on national public radio; their CD recording "Variations on a Memory" was nominated for a Juno Award in 2005.
Prior to his Thunder Bay appointment, Mr. Moull was Principal Conductor of the Bielefeld Philharmonic Orchestra and Opera in Germany. His international conducting career has included performances with such renowned ensembles as the Southwest German Radio Orchestra, the State Opera Hannover, the State Opera Berlin, the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra, the Orchestra of the Pays de la Loire, the Metz Opera, the German Rhine Opera, the Luxemburg Opera, the San Remo Symphony, the CBC Vancouver Radio Orchestra, the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra, the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra, the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra and the International May Festival in Wiesbaden.
Mr. Moull's innovative spirit has led him to program and conduct many premiere performances, and he is responsible for the rediscovery of important compositions of the 19th and 20th century, including works of Berlioz, Schumann, Mahler, D'Albert, Schreker, Martinu, Honegger, Krenek and Weill. In addition to recording for both radio and television, his world premiere CD recordings of Louis Spohr's "Faust" and Theo Loevendie's "Esmée" were received with international acclaim. Das Orchester, Germany's leading music magazine, wrote that "his interpretation was magnificent, with wonderful judging of phrasing, atmosphere and warmth", and he is the recipient of Opernwelt's "Opera Production of the Year" prize.
