Tasting Notes: Pint-sized stories from the conductor’s podium
Join us as we celebrate the culmination of the WSO’s RBC Canadian Conductor Showcase. Enjoy a Nonsuch beer journey with three brews selected by WSO conductors as they and the RBC Emerging Conductors share stories from their view on the podium, lessons learned along the way, and tasting notes on their favourite Nonsuch beers and most loved music.

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.
