I felt it should be mentioned that the WBO orchestra is a professional, union, tenured group.The conductors change every show, but with few exceptions, the orchestra does not. Some of us have been playing with the orchestra for over 20 years!

Wish all of the West Bay( and beyond) would come to see and hear us.
