It’s hard to believe it’s already August, and WSO rehearsal start in September! It’s been a busy summer for us as we line up our four guest conductors, and begin promoting our upcoming season.
We are honored to have Keehun Nam, Dennis Friesen-Carper, Richard Haglund and Hannah Schendel leading our concerts from the podium this season. Each of them brings a unique and diverse approach to musical direction. You can check out their bios at this link. At the end of our season, the WSO Membership will vote in a new permanent music director. We hope you plan to attend every concert, and welcome you to be a part of this experience alongside us.
The process of searching for a new, permanent music director has been both challenging and invigorating for the organization. It’s given us the opportunity to look at who we are, and why we choose to serve the greater Twin Cities community. If you are reading this, you are already a part of our community. We never discount the importance and the value of having musicians coming together to perform free concerts that bring a little extra joy to someone’s life. In a hectic, complicated world, sometimes it’s the simple things that matter the most.
Please mark your calendars:

Enjoy the rest of your summer, and we look forward to seeing you this fall!
