The WSO outdid themselves with their "Bond and Beyond" concert celebrating 50 years of the various incarnations of James Bond movies. The orchestra was most excellent and highly enjoyable was the self-effacing and entertaining banter of conductor Michael Krajewski. I particularly enjoyed watching the percussionists - some very exciting and visceral pieces played with great artistry and skill.The guest vocalist... More

My husband and I have been subscribers forever, and we grow more fond of the WSO with each concert we attend. They are sublime! They make us believe the quote that "music soothes the savage soul" each time we go. We love the classical works best, but we also attend concerts in the New Music and Pops series. Our design-your-own... More

I've been to the WSO a number of times, and I'm often impressed with the variety they offer and the ways they try to bring a modern twist and a modern audience to the performances. Their work with the New Music Festival and their performances with local bands, as well as their ticket options for students and young adults, keep... More

I took my 4 year old daughter to the WSO kids series on June 23rd. What an amazing experience. There is really no room for improvement because it is top notch. The only place where I could suggest better communication is that the theatre actually opens at 1pm for various activities for 1 hour prior to the actual show which... More

We were disappointed. There was not much of actual cirque performances. But at least the 2nd half of show was better than first.

The WSO offers a wide range of programs and concerts to suit anyones tastes. They offer special pricing and deals for people under 30, too bad I didnt know about this until I was over the age limit. I am a subscriber now and have enjoyed all the masterworks shows. The pre show talks are informative and fun, helping to... More
