“Beethoven was all about love and joy and celebrating the essence of what it is to be human, and what it is to be connected.” -Marin Alsop, National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain

The WSO invites you to a virtual celebration of Beethoven’s 250th birthday from the comfort of your own home! This unique evening of musical and gastronomic excellence will provide a rare opportunity for music-lovers to connect in celebration of “what it is to be human.

We encourage you to invite your friends and loved ones from your unique ‘bubble’ to join you in your home as Maestro Raiskin hosts a 2-hour program filled with memorable, exclusive performances.

Relax and dine from a menu crafted by the Chef of 529 Wellington, sip on wine curated by their sommelier and enjoy being entertained by our special guests James EhnesDon AmeroTracy DahlDavid Moroz and Jan Lisiecki. We are also thrilled to present interludes featuring the Clearwater Quartet.

Of course, the evening would not be complete without an “a la carte” selection of mixed musical offerings from the musicians of our very own Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra. To top off your dining experience, we are proud to offer you a delectable dessert, lovingly prepared by our talented WSO Baking Club.

The evening will begin with your personalized dining and wine selections delivered directly to your door, complete with instructions on how to apply the “finishing touches” to your dining experience. Maestro Raiskin will usher in the evening, live from Amsterdam, with a message of hope during these times, and offer up a “bubbly” toast to all things for which we can be thankful.
