The WSO brings live musical performances to communities across Rhode Island. As a regional volunteer touring 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. Our membership of 60+ dedicated members merge their creative energies and insights together in order to energize ourselves through great music and to entertain audiences of all ages and experience.
Throughout mid-winter and spring 2023 the diverse membership of the WSO is actively rehearsing as smaller ensembles to present a series of FREE outreach performances for our community. The Warwick Public Library – 600 Sandy Lane, Warwick will host premiere performances by these ensembles:
CONCERT #1 – STRING ORCHESTRA: Sunday – February 12, 2023 @ 2:00pm
18 of WSO’s most dedicated string players join forces for a program ranging from Classical to Folk selections
AVISON – Concerto in e minor
DANIELS – Pendelton Suite
JONES – English Folk Song Suite
LECUONA – Siboney
MOZART – Eine Kleine Nachtmusik
Note – Programs are subject to change.
All performances of the A Little Live Music program are free and open to the public. The Warwick Public Library is fully accessible and ADA compliant. WSO also welcomes families with members who find traditional classical concerts sensory-challenging; these events will involve lights on, smaller ensembles (less instruments = lesser volume), and all involved welcome immediate audience interaction. Families with small children are also encouraged to attend.
Funding for the A Little Live Music program has been provided in part by a grant from the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts, through an appropriation by the Rhode Island General Assembly, a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts and private funders.
