My foursome are in their late 40s, early 50s and we felt the music was meant for the audience that is 20yrs older. we left at intermission. because we are int he second balcony at the top, as we proceeded down we could see we weren't the only ones.

The WSO offers performances of quality but the last season was quite predictable. Why not offer more variety in terms of more recent works over the last 50 years? Also create a more fun and diverse backdrop. Could dancers be added to some musical numbers?

The symphony plays at the concert hall and it is always a fantastic evening. On Canada Day the symphony performed at the stage at the Forks. It was great to enjoy the music at an outdoor venue. Be sure to visit them in the Concert Hall during the upcoming season. They offer Pops concerts, Masterworks, and a variety of other... More

This evening's post-concert reaction of one of Winnipeg's own local French horn artists: "WOW, what a show! The live orchestral music was amazing… " Coming from a superb instrumentalist in her own right, I fully agree with the comment. The WSO played their first-ever "Pay what you can" concert this evening at the Centennial concert hall in downtown Winnipeg, and... More

I have attended many concerts here over the years and they have always been wonderful. The Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra is a world renown orchestra that hosts many well known, established musicians in featured performances. Listening to the symphony play Beethoven's Ninth Symphony gave me chills. Also impressive was their production of Beethoven's Seventh Symphony. Of course, this is a versatile... More

When the Winnipeg Jets left our city for 15 years, between 1995 and 2010, a lot of the money that normally went into paying for season or single tickets, went back into the arts community in the form of season tickets for plays, symphonies, theatre, opera and music. We were one of those couples, buying tickets for MTC, Prairie Theatre... More
