Gordon Wolfe joined the Toronto Symphony Orchestra (TSO) in 2001 as associate principal trombone and took over the role of principal trombone in 2006. In addition to his work with the TSO, Gordon has spent much of his time south of the border as principal trombone of the Lancaster Summer Festival Orchestra in Ohio, the Colorado Music Festival Orchestra in Boulder, and the Sun Valley Summer Symphony in Idaho. Prior to his move to Toronto, he held positions with the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra and the Victoria Symphony Orchestra. He has also performed as a guest with the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the National Arts Centre Orchestra.
Outside of his orchestral work, Gordon has been featured as a soloist with the TSO, Orchestra Toronto, and Hannaford Street Silver Band. He was a founding member of the Central Park Brass, a privately funded ensemble with the goal of providing free concerts and musical education for young people in New York's Central Park throughout the summer.
Hailing from British Columbia, Gordon received his musical training at the University of Victoria and McGill University, studying with Ian McDougall, Peter Sullivan, and Thomas Eadie. He has been consistently active as a teacher, previously on faculty at the University of Manitoba and University of Toronto, and currently The Royal Conservatory's Glenn Gould School.
