Nursery Notes is an innovative music outreach program specifically designed for preschool-aged children. A specialized Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra string quintet will visit your nursery school to share a presentation that has been specially designed to educate and appeal to your students. The children will connect with the music, the instruments, the musicians, and they will explore the concepts of basic emotions through this interactive performance and with our musical puppet, ‘Symphony Sam’.

Presentation Format

The Nursery Notes string quintet will share two 30-minute presentations with your students, separated by a minimum 15-minute break, allowing for two audience groups to enjoy presentations. The WSO requests a maximum audience of 15 children and a minimum of 3 adult caregivers per presentation.


Thank you for your interest in our Nursery Notes Program, but unfortunately all performances for 19-20 have been booked. Generally the schedule of available performances for the season will be posted in the early fall. Please check back in fall 2020 for available performances in 20-21.

The available dates & times are listed on the second page of the order form (linked below).  Once we receive your completed form, the WSO Education & Community Engagement department will contact you to confirm the date & schedule for your Nursery Notes visit.

Please note: these performances are in high-demand and visits are booked on a first-come, first-served basis. Please send us your order with payment as quickly as you can.


$225 ($214.29 plus $10.71 GST) for both presentations.
