The WSO’s 50th Anniversary celebratory Black and White Gala, with honorary chairperson The Honorable Judge Steven Bieda of the 37th District Court, Master of Ceremonies WJR Radio’s Marie Osborne and chaired by Diane Young, will be held:

The Gazebo Banquet Center

31104 Mound Rd, Warren
Tickets can be purchased at or
by calling the WSO offices at (586)754-2950.
“The WSO was formed soon after a local school district’s string program was eliminated in the 1970s due to budget constraints,” explains WSO Executive Director Joyce Russell. “To this day, we work to be an accessible and affordable cultural gem for Warren and its surrounding communities. Our mission continues to include exposing school-aged children to cultivate a new generation of classical music lovers.”

“The WSO’s musicians and I are honored to follow in the steps of the original conductor – the infamous Dr. David Daniels,” says WSO Conductor and Music Director Andrew Neer. “Dr. Daniels conducted the WSO for 3 decades and his music books are the gold standard performance manual. So to celebrate 50 years of the fruits of his and the board’s labors is just an incredible credit to the great community of Warren.”

Current sponsors of the Black and White Gala are:  Arrowroot Family Office, Freelance Reporters, Inc., Kirk, Huth, Lang & Badalamenti, Plunkett Cooney, Mayor Lori Stone, The Strunk Foundation and TMR Associates.


The Warren Symphony Society, Inc. and its performance arm, Warren Symphony Orchestra (WSO), is a nonprofit, 501 C 3, which supports and advances a professional orchestra for cultural enrichment, entertainment, and youth engagement in this community and beyond.
