Our WSO on the Go concerts have not only been a way to connect with our friends and neighbors through music, but they have also served as a reminder of the thriving artistic and cultural unity that we have in this region. We hope people join us for a truly enjoyable evening and entertaining concert, while also getting a taste of local flavor and whiskey, too.”
