To save this old theatre from bankruptcy and, perhaps, demolition, the City of Windsor took it over and gave it to the Windsor Symphony Orchestra as a permanent home. It is probably a good venue for theatre and small concerts (there are actually two theatres in the building) and, despite a wonderful addition of an acoustic shell on the stage, it is still not an appropriate location for an orchestra of the mid-range quality of the Windsor Symphony (WSO). Windsor is not a very sophisticated City culturally and has squeezed its symphony and almost eliminated it fabulous art gallery in order to build a water sports comples of dubious commercial value. The WSO probably should have a real concert hall but Windsor seems obsessed with sports--it is a lunch-bucket town after all--and thus culture has tended to be diminished.
