Adventures in Music

Recommended for grades 4 – 6

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 thousands of Manitoba students, showcasing a variety of styles of music while also providing opportunities for students and teachers to perform on stage with the WSO in mass choirs, string ensembles, 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.


A fascinating adventure through music & time for ways to be better stewards of this planet

This adventure through time begins at Centennial Concert Hall in April, 2024 where students will quickly find themselves whisked through musical time, exploring orchestral music by many of the great symphonic composers through time and from across the globe. Students will learn through music how we can be good stewards and take better care of this great planet we call home.
