“…the Arts community is an important part of what goes on in the city. [The WSO] is like the backbone of the arts community because it filters out importance to other areas in the art community. – Anonymous

“It provides the necessary music infrastructure for this city: MCO, Winnipeg Chamber Music Society, Winnipeg Philharmonic Choir, Royal Winnipeg Ballet, Manitoba Opera, a significant number of music teachers, Manitoba composers, and many other groups and activities.” – Judith Flynn 

“Having the WSO in my community means that we have the gift of world-class music within the reach of the community on so many levels.” – LM Anderson
