During this unprecedented time, the Windsor Symphony Orchestra has cancelled the remainder of the 2019/2020 season. As heartbreaking as this decision may be for our city’s music-lovers, it is the only responsible course of action to protect the health of our patrons, volunteers, musicians, staff, and the broader community.
