The partnership with Wesfarmers Arts has enabled the very best soloists and conductors from around the world to perform with WASO and continues to help the Orchestra reach diverse audiences through its concerts, regional touring and education and community engagement programs.
We’re very privileged in Western Australia to have a first-rate orchestra that contributes at so many levels to the life and energy of our state. Without a doubt WASO holds a special place in the heart of this community and deservedly so. From their thrilling concerts in our very beautiful Perth Concert Hall to the outreach performances in hospitals, remotes communities and schools across Western Australia, WASO is bringing the joy of music to ever larger and more diverse audiences year on year. Thank you WASO – it’s wonderful to be celebrating 20 years of partnership with you in 2017. – Helen Carroll, Manager Wesfarmers Arts
