News flash! The new assistant conductor of the WSO, and youth orchestra conductor, will be Daniel Wiley. Maestro Wiley will take over officially on June 1, and Mr. Wiebe will be working closely with him to ensure a smooth transition. For next year, current members are all welcome to continue with the orchestra. For WSYO, there will be auditions likely in September for returning musicians, so that our new conductor can get to know you and determine seating.
