The WSO brings classical and orchestral pops performances to communities across Rhode Island. As a regional volunteer symphony, the WSO seeks to deliver high-quality live music and affordable performances to diverse communities. WSO ensures accessibility and appeals to a wide-ranging audience of varied backgrounds through programming that seamlessly between classical and orchestral pops programs.
With our diverse membership ages teen through 70+, WSO will present a program of classical and holiday works, that celebrate the color palette created exclusively through the instruments of a full symphony including:
Festive Fanfare – Brian Balmages L’adoration du St. Sepulcre - Sigismund Neukomm Concerto Grosso, Op 6 No 8 – Arcangelo Corelli Capriccio Espagnole, Op 34 – Nicolai Rimsky-Korsakov Rocket Sleigh – Delvyn Case The Bells of Christmas – Bob Krogstad, arranger And MORE…
This program includes performances by the full symphony, strings alone, and winds-brass-percussion alone, plus solos passages featuring Gia Antonlini – violin 1 / concertmaster, Ann Danis – principal violin 2, Emily Johnston – principal cello as well as principal winds: Kaleigh Cipoletta – flute, Xander Wilkinson – oboe, and Robert Nanna – clarinet. With the changing nature of health and welfare guidelines, WSO encourages audiences to wear masks if ill or in the case of possible exposure to viruses including COVID and influenza.
