Filip Stasiak, Double Bassist, holds a Diploma in Chamber Music from Wilfrid Laurier University, a MMus in Literature and Performance from the University of Western Ontario, and a BMus from Wayne State University in Detroit. Stasiak joined the NSO in 2012, but continues performing as a freelance player with orchestras, chamber ensembles, and music theatre productions throughout Ontario. Since 2011, Stasiak has also been a member of the award winning world music group, The Light of East Ensemble. A recent interest in period performance has led Stasiak to study with Tafelmusik at both their Summer and Winter institutes, and subsequently to perform with Toronto’s Talisker players and Aradia Ensemble. As an educator, Stasiak maintains a large private studio in London Ontario and is a double bass instructor in the Music Education Department at Western University.
