Windsor Symphony Orchestra: Digital Education Concert Series

Dedicated to connecting people through music, Daniel is ecstatic to bring the thrill of classical music to students whether they be in their classroom or at home. While there is no substitute for experiencing an orchestral concert in person, the recent shift towards digital learning has provided a unique opportunity to increase the depth and potency of the WSO’s educational programming.
