Who is the WSO?
Established in 1966 by George Low as a continuing education opportunity through the Warwick Public Schools, the WSO is a non-profit regional orchestra with a diverse membership. Catherine Gagnon is WSO’s fifth Music Director, and under her guidance, the WSO presents about eight concerts annually. With programs offered in a variety of settings and at affordable prices, WSO presents music representing the changing interests of our community including pops selections, the music of film and Broadway, popular works, and traditional orchestral repertoire. WSO strives to balance concerts with pieces that are recognizable along with those that can develop our audience’s understanding of and appreciation for classical and contemporary music. WSO is also always accepting new members; interested parties can obtain further information by contacting us at WSOri.org.

WSO’s Vision
WSO values our role in the fabric of the musical community of Rhode Island as a touring symphony. We seek to share our creative work with communities that may not otherwise have easy access to quality live music events and are enthusiastic about performing in both traditional and unconventional spaces. Our expanding membership of amateur adults, high school and college students, retired professionals, music educators and life-long learners are dedicated to the social, spiritual and cognitive benefits of presenting and attending live performances.

The WSO aims to provide an outlet for continued musical development for all our participants, serve as an artistic asset within our community, develop and diversify our audiences through a variety of programs and collaborative partnerships with both musical and non-musical organizations including charities, non-profits and service agencies. Our membership believes that music brings people together, and a concert can be more than just a concert.
