We went to the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra en famille and were just so impressed with the quality of our seats (purchased online) and the wonderful sound of the hall. We attended the Russian Fireworks, with the WSO and the Winnipeg Youth Orchestra and the enthusiastic audience raised the rafters with shouts of Bravo!, thunderous applause, and a standing ovation.

Last time I went was new music festival. Was great stuff. Got a giant cookie and my friend and I had a good time, some people were kinda loud and rude but that wasn't the WSOs fault. :^)

We drive up to Winnipeg at least a couple of times per year to attend one of the wonderful concerts at WSO. From Northern Minnesota, WSO is the closest large venue. Last year, we had season tickets and this was nice as we could reschedule at the last minute due to blizzards, etc. Shows are very affordable for students.

Now, i did not know much besides the shrek song. This was a mixed bag for the group. Now he has a great voice but as i stated, alot of the songs sounded the same - tempo, flow. I had to wait until the first encore to hear the shrek song. Also, i usually see the WSO play with the... More

We have been Pops Season Ticket holders for the past 5 years. Sometimes we like to stretch our music knowledge by exchanging tickets for Classics Series (no charge!) Even if we don't know the artist/group playing with the Symphony we go for the experience, if it's not for us we still appreciate the talent of our very own WSO. It... More

Amazing attraction to visit in Winnipeg with your family and friends. Few days ago I went at Opera to see The Marriage of Figaro. Lovely attraction and, of course, I recommend to you.

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?
