Education and Community programs are a central focus of the WSO's commitment to the people of Windsor-Essex.  The Orchestra has introduced thousands of young people to symphonic music through live concert experiences and performances both in schools and in our theatre, in addition to Music Director Robert Franz going into schools to work with music students.


Community performances include Music for Health, interactive concerts in senior residences, and Neighbourhood Concerts with ensembles and small orchestras performing for community organizations at their locations.


Thanks to the support of many generous individual, foundation, corporate, and governmental funding partners, the Orchestra’s educational and community programs reach thousands of young people and adults annually, helping to foster a love of music and a lifetime of involvement with performing art.
