WSO x Kilter: A chill evening of music and drink
There’s little better in life than good music and good beer. Come experience both as the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra and Kilter Brewing Co. team up to present a one-night only concert that showcases what classical music is really all about. The performance takes place in Kilter’s intimate taproom and features a string quartet of WSO musicians. Pop by, grab a beer, and get cozy – we’ll give you a night of music you won’t soon forget. Kilter Brewing is a locally owned craft brewery, and unless you bike in the area, it's rare that you’ll stumble upon this spot, but it’s well worth the visit. Berliner Fest transports you to an intimate and comforting atmosphere and brings you to a space nestled in the heart of St. Boniface. Sneak away from the crowds in a space filled with greenery, beer filled barrels, and seating ranging from communal tables, to velvet couches, and papasan swings.

Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra
The Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra (WSO), currently celebrating its 72nd year, is a gem of an orchestra tucked into the geographic centre of North America. Music critic Norman Lebrecht describes it as “an orchestra with a sound all its own,” and that is no surprise. From its debut 1948 performance to over 3,000 audience members, the WSO has become a powerhouse orchestra, regularly surprising guest conductors and artists with the exceptional musicianship and flexibility of its members. The WSO’s activity regularly extends beyond its home stage at the Centennial Concert Hall in Winnipeg. It has produced concerts everywhere from Olympic size diving boards to cottage country harbours. The orchestra has toured twice to Carnegie Hall and regularly performed across Manitoba and Canada. From its founding, the orchestra has been a pillar in the Canadian music scene, commissioning and premiering hundreds of new works. The Canadian Music Centre recently recognized the WSO with its Award of Excellence for its work promoting the Canadian voice. This work has also been recognized by a 2017 JUNO win and 2018 nomination for best classical recording of the year. In 2011, the WSO founded Sistema Winnipeg (based on the famous Venezuelan El Sistema), in partnership with two Winnipeg school divisions, to deliver daily, intensive music education that focuses on children with the fewest resources and greatest need in Winnipeg’s urban core. Over 32,000 students attend orchestra concerts presented by the WSO each season, and its innovative pops and film programs introduce a rapidly growing audience to symphonic music.
