Musicians in the Making at the Winspear Centre
Presented by TELUS, this program features promising student soloists and ensembles performing half-hour showcases prior to selected ESO performances in the lobbies of the Winspear Centre. All participants are then invited to be our guest at a concert, courtesy of our friends at TELUS.
