Tom Allen

Tom Allen studied at McGill University, graduated from Boston University and received his MM at Yale. While looking for work as a trombonist, he worked as an office temp on Wall Street and as a cook in a Mexican restaurant. He eventually played with the New York City Ballet Orchestra, and with Mel Lewis and the Jazz Orchestra at the Village Vanguard, but the roar of the crowd at Fenway Park when he and 87 other trombonists played for for the Boston Red Sox 1982 home opener remains a cherished memory. In 1987 he came home to Canada, touring with the Great Lakes Brass until he joined CBC Radio in Halifax. Since then he has hosted many programs on both Radio 1 and 2, authored three books and hosted countless orchestra concerts and festivals in Canada and the U.S. Tom lives in Toronto with his wife, the harpist Lori Gemmell, and is the father of three children.
