WSO women’s group seeks new members
The women’s committee of the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra is looking for new volunteer members to join the roughly 65 women members now engaged in activities contributing to the financial support of the orchestra. Prospective members would participate in committee activities of their choice and attend monthly membership meetings in the September-to-May meeting period.
The popular committee was founded almost 70 years ago, shortly after the orchestra itself came into being. Its activities currently include organizing and operating the WSO music stand boutique located in the concert hall foyer at each WSO concert, annual raffles, a recital featuring WSO musicians and a special event which includes a brunch or lunch at a local hotel along with a presentation or a speaker.
The recruitment drive culminates with a special event for prospective members on Oct. 22 in the green room of the concert hall. Women interested in volunteering are invited to contact the committee regarding the event, at 204-261-1867 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
