2018-19 Season Brochure


Upcoming Concert:

Of War and Might

Of War and Might

Music Director Candidate – Amy McLennan
Piano & Violin Soloist – Marcus Scholtes

Sunday February 24, 2019, 3:00 pm
Knox Presbyterian Church, Waterloo

There is a stark reality in our concert’s theme Of War and Might. It covers the whole gamut of human  emotion: from pride, admiration, celebration, to fear and sorrow. Perhaps music, more than other media,  best conveys the essence of these emotions.

Our concert features just such music: Gustav Holst’s  Mars from The Planets, selections from Edward Gregson’s The Sword and the Crown, Guy Woolfenden’s Gallimaufry, Yasuhide Ito’s Gloriosa and Samuel Barber’s Adagio (played by our clarinet section). Continuing in our theme and rounding out the program, guest soloist Marcus Scholtes, accompanied by the Wind Symphony, will perform  Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 3, 1st movement, and on violin, John Williams’s Schindler’s List.

Tickets are available at the door.

Adults: $20.00         Seniors (60+): $15.00          Students: Free

The strength of this theme, Of War and Might, is undeniable. Wartime events encompass so much emotion: pride of country, admiration for leaders, celebration of victory, dealing with defeat, loss of loved ones. The composers on this program excel at expressing these emotions. More…

This will be an exciting season for the Wellington Wind Symphony. For the first time in ten years, we will be auditioning for a new Music Director. Each concert will be rehearsed by a different candidate, so expect some surprises. We hope they will add some of their personal favourites. You will have the opportunity to witness and contribute to this process by giving us feedback on the conductors: their interpretations of the music, their ability to connect with the audience, and their skill at inspiring our musicians to give their very best.


    Adults: $20.00         Seniors (60+): $15.00          Students: Free
