Windsor, ON – The WSO is ready to take the stage this Spring with 3 amazing concerts.
Maestro Robert Franz, WSO Music Director says, “We’re excited and quite ready to get back to performing live. These concerts will bring our audiences one of my favourite Beethoven symphonies, a fun concert for the young ones and the talented Colleen Williams singing from the great American songbook! We’re really looking forward to it!”

Beethoven was considered an innovator of his time and created a total of nine symphonies. Over 200 years ago, in 1803 he premiered Symphony No.3, an enlightening, unprecedented piece of music that expands the understanding of life and the world around him. People were not ready for this symphony and its depth. However, a mere 1 year later, this piece cemented Beethoven’s place in musical history and changed the idea of what a symphony could be.
