James Spragg


Associated with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra as an “extra” since 1969 under Karel Ančerl, Jim has been living the dream job as a full player since 1987, in the position of section trumpet.

He has held many important positions in some of Canada's major performing groups, such as Orchestre symphonique de Québec, Hamilton Philharmonic, Canadian Opera Company, The National Ballet of Canada, Stratford Festival, and New Music Concerts.

Living in Toronto, never too far from Roy Thomson Hall and his trumpet, Jim and his wife Lorraine also serve as staff for two precocious Siamese cats.
