POPS

Made in Manitoba

Due to the announcement of further restrictions to help stem the spread of COVID-19 by provincial health officials, we are regrettably rescheduling this concert. New dates for the concerts will be announced at a later date.

All tickets for these concerts, including the livestream, will be honoured for the new dates. 

Many have wondered if it’s the long winters, something in the water, or maybe the magical prairie wind that makes for so much artistic talent in our beautiful province. Whatever it is, Made in Manitoba showcases a taste of incredible homegrown talent in an intimate and acoustic setting, playing selections from their own recordings with the orchestra.

Don Amero is a three-time JUNO Award-nominated singer-songwriter who is also recognized for his work as an amplifier of Indigenous thought and ideas through his Cree and Métis heritage.

With influences from her African heritage, la chanson française and American gospel, Kelly Bado’s music crosses cultural barriers. Her debut French language album won World Artist of the Year at the 2018 Western Canadian Music Awards and her new album was nominated for Best Francophone Album of the year at the 2020 Western Canadian Music Awards.

Together, Winnipeg songstress Erin Propp and the incredible guitarist Larry Roy are a JUNO-nominated duo whose music has been described as blurring the edges of the everyday with deeply personal songs and achingly relatable works. This is a return engagement for the pair, who performed with the WSO in 2016.

Current ticket holders: Your ticket to the concert also includes access to the livestream of the performance.

You will receive an email prior to the concert with a private link and instructions on how to watch the concert from home. The concert will be available for viewing for approximately 72 hours after the livestream.
