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

The performers are very professional and surprisingly friendly! We had a nice evening listening to them perform a Christmas show in our local community and while I do not listen to classical music, I thoroughly enjoyed the whole performance.

The WSO does not just play 'classical' music, as some may believe. This was an evening of delight, energy, and pure joy as we listened to our friend play, and sing, Broadway music in a new and innovative style, arranged by himself! And at times, inviting the audience to sing along! This was a highlight of my year!

Never a poor performance - world class. A nice venue with very good sound/acoustics. There is always a performance for every taste - classics, pops, mainstream music, guest performers.

This evening was magical. I don't remember when I had so much fun. The conductor, Ivars Taurins brought the evening to life. He was brilliant and gave us direction with humour. Since I'm used to listening to the melody, I had some trouble at first because I'm an alto. Interspersing the Mennonite Festival Choir in the audience was pure genius.... More

Saw the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra with Randy Bachman today. We all enjoyed this performance very much. The hometown boy coming home and sharing his stories of starting his music career in Winnipeg and the trivia leading up to the songs he wrote and performed. Loved the symphony. This is my first time attending a WSO performance and I know I... More

It was more than expected, got good seats on short notice. It was easy to get to by cab from the 529 Wellington restaurant. Nothing negative about the evening.
