Hello everyone!

We have made some progress on the heat at the Capitol!  It’s definitely looking better, but to be safe, we will have rehearsal tomorrow at Mackenzie Hall, and hopefully we’ll be back to the Pentastar Stage next weekend!

I have a few things to tell you about, but first, here’s your checklist for tomorrow:

Don’t forget!

  • Your instrument
  • Your music stand
  • Your pencil
  • Your music
  • Your QR code
  • Your identification

Dr. B and the WSYO students are inviting you to play “Hallelujah” with them at our concert on May 1.  The music is on our google drive here (password is WSYOrocks!), and I will have printed copies for you at rehearsal tomorrow.  


March 11

Around 35 students from the Toledo School of the Arts are coming to visit Windsor on March 11.  They will be rehearsing at the Capitol at 4:45pm, and they would love for you to play with them.  Maestro Wiley is in town that weekend, so he will be conducting the rehearsal, and he would love to see you too!  The rehearsal will be about an hour, and then you are all invited to stay to watch the WSO rehearsal onstage that evening.  

I have put their pieces on our google drive, there are 3 pieces, all by Canadian Composers.  It would be great to see all of our WSYO’s there!  Everyone is welcome, please let me know if you can come!

May 5

We have May 5 at 7pm set for a rehearsal with conductors who are auditioning to be the WSO Assistant Conductor.  This is an opportunity for WSYO members to rehearse with each of the candidates (you will be rehearsing with the music we play for the May 1 concert, nothing new).  The hiring committee will be observing and assessing to see how the candidates relate to you, and how they present information, etc.
