WSO Brass Quintet brings music to Heritage Gardens Park

by Sylene Argent

On Saturday evening, the Windsor Symphony Orchestra’s (WSO) Brass Quintet entertained a fair-sized audience in the Heritage Gardens Park.

  Giancarlo Mincone of the Windsor Symphony Orchestra said Saturday evening’s event was the first of several free summer concerts that will take place across the region as a way to bring music into communities.

  Some individuals in Essex may not be able to get out to Windsor to enjoy a WSO concert, Mincone said, so the summer concert series is a great way to connect the organization to music lovers across the region.

  It is hoped that those who may have never had an opportunity to enjoy an WSO concert before will enjoy their first interaction with the orchestra and perhaps attend future events.

  The other bonus of the events is that they also bring attention to the parks in which the concerts are held, Mincone said.

  “It is a fun day to get out and do something new and interesting,” he commented.

  The Town of Essex sponsored the event for residents to enjoy, which offered a long-list of tunes to the attendees to experience.

  Councillor Morley Bowman said the Town appreciated being able to have the WSO play at the Heritage Gardens Park for a concert when he welcomed the Brass Quintet.

  The Wind Quartet will perform at 7pm at Colchester Harbour Park on July 19 and again the following evening at the John R. Park Homestead as part of this series. Other concerts are also planned around the region.
