The WSO welcomes new Board President, Deborah Severs!

Deborah Severs

Please join the WSO in welcoming Deborah Severs
as the new President of its Board of Directors!

Having joined the Board in 2016, Deborah becomes President in the WSO’s 74th season. A partner at Hogarth Hermiston Severs LLP, Deborah has served the community of Windsor and Essex County for many years.

Special thanks go to Jennifer McKim for her guidance as the previous WSO Board President. The WSO looks forward to her continued presence on the Board’s Executive Committee.

To kick off her term, Deborah’s firm and Maestro Robert Franz have joined forces to match the first $3,500 donated to the 2021 WSO Giving Tuesday campaign!

What is Giving Tuesday?

Giving Tuesday is a global generosity movement, taking place each year after Black Friday. The “opening day of the giving season,” it’s a time when charities, companies and individuals join together and rally for favourite causes.

In the same way that retailers take part in Black Friday, the giving community comes together for Giving Tuesday. Last year, more than 6 million Canadians raised over $36 million dollars for charitable causes.

All donations made to the 2021 WSO Giving Tuesday campaign between now and Tuesday, November 30th will be doubled thanks to Hogarth Hermiston Severs LLP and Maestro Robert Franz.

Donations made to this campaign support the WSO’s Education and Community Outreach programs. These include the:

  • Windsor Symphony Youth Orchestras
  • Windsor Symphony Community Orchestra
  • Education programs for students from Kindergarten to Grade 12
  • Music for Health program
  • Summer Concert Series
  • and more!

Every donation made to this campaign between now and Tuesday, November 30th will be matched dollar-for-dollar!

How does it work? 

Having your donation matched is simple!

Make a donation to the WSO’s 2021 Giving Tuesday campaign by or before Tuesday, November 30th and it will be automatically matched thanks to Hogarth Hermiston Severs LLP and Maestro Robert Franz.
