Special Event

Opening Night Gala Celebration

Thursday, September 29, 2022

The Capitol Theatre
7:30 pm

The WSO’s artistic mission will be fully embodied in our Opening Night Gala for the 2022-23 season. This special event and concert will boast seven living American creators: Christylez Bacon, Yo-Yo Ma, Caroline Shaw, Enrico Lopez-Yañez, John Williams and Evan Meier. These artists and composers represent a variety of stories, ages, backgrounds, genders and perspectives— but they will come together on this night to celebrate “American Stories.”

We are working to make our Opening Night Gala Celebration a very special event for our patrons and community. Pricing and other event details will be released soon. Please check back.
