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.
