Firesound opens the WSO Toldo Pops concert season with a weekend of performances October 23rd to 25th. Members from Windsor Fire & Rescue Services will make a special appearance with Firesound and the WSO.
The concert, titled Burning Love, is programed entirely with songs about fire, burning, fever, and heat.
