Your WSO. Building creative capital.


Investing in your WSO.Maestro Franz rehearses with the orchestra

The WSO puts on amazing concerts. Whether it’s the Toldo Pops or the Tepperman Masterworks, the Intimate Classics at on-the-road venues or special events at the historic Capitol and Chrysler Theatres, people are talking about this go-to cultural experience. But the WSO is more than extraordinary concerts. It is the creative heart for the performing arts community in Windsor-Essex with professional musicians and guest artists at the top of their game. From the concert hall to the classroom, the WSO gives our community significance and a cultural voice.


Together, we create community.

Combining agility and ability, the WSO is an orchestra-about-town that builds community wherever it goes. As the anchor tenant of the Capitol Theatre, the WSO stewards the city’s history, provides a venue for other cultural arts groups, and encourages civic engagement in the city’s core, while helping to drive traffic to downtown businesses. Through its education and outreach programs in schools and community centres, through its health and wellness programs in retirement homes and hospitals, and, of course, through its concerts at the Capitol Theatre, the WSO continues to innovate and evolve—and to build creative capital in Windsor.


The time is now. And always.

In an age of ever-constricting public funds, your financial support of the WSO is essential. While your participation acknowledges the important role the WSO plays in the community, your financial support shapes how music is shared with audiences, experienced in venues, and communicated through education and outreach programs. You make a difference where a difference matters.
