People are talking… and they’re talking about all the great performances scheduled for the Windsor Symphony Orchestra’s 2018/2019 Season!

Last year, the WSO saw record-setting sold out performances in all mainstage performances.  This season is likely to surpass last season record due to the fantastic programing by WSO Music Director Robert Franz.

Performances at the Capitol Theatre include: West Side Story In Concert, Witches and Wizards: the Music of Harry Potter, Holiday Pops (the Polar Express and the 12 Days of Canadian Christmas), Gershwin Meets Steinway, and Fiddlin’ Around (Featuring Broadway fiddler Caitlin Warbelow and music from Come From Away) on the Toldo Pops Series.

The Tepperman Masterworks Series (of which 4 of 5 performances sold out last season) performances include: Grieg Piano Concert featuring pianist Spencer Myer, Mozart’s Double Piano Concerto featuring UWindsor professors Dr. Greg Butler and Dr. Christine Vanderkooy, French Connections, Mozart’s Requiem, and Scheherazade featuring Iranian-Canadian duo Kamancello.

The WSO is returning to Leamington and the University of Windsor’s Heritage Auditorium for the Classics in the County and the Morris and Beverly Baker Foundation Intimate Classics Series.  These series feature performances including: Simple Symphonies, 1918 Remembered, the Italian Baroque, and Farewell Symphony.

New to the WSO season is the ONSTAGE @ The Capitol Theatre Series which features cocktails and cabaret seating ONSTAGE WITH THE ORCHESTRA.  Say goodbye to the days of sitting in the audience!  This intimate, immersive, and exclusive series gives audiences the opportunity to Live The Orchestra ExperienceONSTAGE features performances including: Strings & Spirits, Caesars Rule (which includes a create-your-own custom Caesar station), and Haydn the Hooch (a nod to Windsor’s bootlegging, Prohibition past).

The WSO will continue to perform special concerts including: Handel’s Messiah in Leamington and Tecumseh, multiple Windsor Symphony Youth Orchestra performances under the leadership of the WSO’s new Assistant Conductor Daniel Wiley, and the ever-popular Viewpointe Rocks! concerts that features the music of Bowie & Prince.

Caitlin and Jonathan, who both live in downtown Windsor, decided, like many couples, that the Capitol Theatre would be a romantic setting for their wedding. Not only are they supporting this historic building by bringing friends and family here to enjoy the space, but they are supporting many downtown businesses for most of their wedding needs. As described in this article by Joe McParland in BizX magazine (June, 2017, p. 40), the Downtown Windsor BIA are also thrilled by this initiative, many other businesses are chipping in wedding gifts for the couple!
