Adventures in Music is a comprehensive program designed to introduce students in grades 4 – 6 to the amazing world of symphonic music. This adventure is the musical event of the year for over 14,000 Manitoba students; showcasing a variety of styles of music and providing opportunities for students and teachers to perform on stage with the WSO in student movement ensembles, as well as in string and recorder ensembles. A curriculum-based Study Guide with wide-ranging lesson plans and activities in both official languages is provided to teachers upon registration to introduce the concert repertoire and the orchestra to students in the classroom and prepare them for a truly exciting experience. Adventures in Music is presented in both official languages.

Grades 4-6

Join our adventure to explore the fascinating world of music and art!
Bring your students to Centennial Concert Hall to help the WSO and our resident superhero, Captain Manitoba, avenge some clever art thieves. Together we will explore the fascinating relationship between music and art through story with excerpts from Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition along with some other really super musical selections. This year’s adventure will be made even more exciting with performances by Canadian children’s entertainer Mr. Mark, professional dancers, a live painting on-stage and student movement, recorder and string ensembles, and of course the full WSO!
