    I would like to go to the concert in order to hear Jeanne Lamon and the WSO. The WSO always puts on a tremendous concert and I have enjoyed each concert I have attended. The WSO is a great orchestra and it would be a pleasure to hear them once again.

    It’s been a difficult week for our family with my wife’s father suffering a stroke. To have a restful evening with beautiful music will be good for the soul.

    I’m new to Winnipeg and haven’t made it out to a WSO concert yet. It would be wonderful to hear them in person instead of just reading reviews!

      Thanks, Janice! Your name will be entered into the draw as well. And if you’re not lucky this time, remember that you can also opt for the staff and faculty discount available for this concert!

    My 13 year old grand daughter has not been to the Symphony, I think it would be a fabulous experience for her to go (she is very musically inclined and does play the trumpet)!

      A perfect night out for a lucky 13 year old and her grandmother. Good luck! Your name will be entered into the draw.

    I would love to attend as I unfortunately do not allow myself the pleasure of attending as I am usually taking care of others needs

    I would love to take my spouse – as an early birthday treat – to this WSO performance as she is a big fan of the wonderful WSO.

    The last time I was went to see the WSO was in elementary school. I listen to classical music all the time, but haven’t had the occasion to get back to see/hear it live since. Would love the opportunity to re-live the magic that is the WSO!

    1. Mariianne Mays Wiebe - Author

      Free magic is the best magic. (Though discounted magic works, too.:) Thanks for your entry, Vanessa! Your name will be included in the draw.

  8. Zoe Green

    I would love to take my Mom to this concert. She enjoys WSO performances and I think she would be over the moon to get tickets to this one with Jeanne Lamon! I can’t think of a better way to spend a Friday evening together 🙂

    1. Mariianne Mays Wiebe - Author

      Thanks for your entry, Zoe. We’ll include your name in the draw on behalf of you and your mom!

  9. Jennifer Schneider

    Haydn’s Symphony would be magnificent to hear live and performed by the WSO. Also, I have never seen a member from the orchestra conduct before. That would be interesting to witness!

      It will be a unique concert! Thanks for your entry, Jennifer. Your name will be entered into the draw.
