No one believes in the mission of the WSO more than our dedicated board members and talented staff.  From programming to customer service to logistics, their work sets the stage for every performance.

The Wheeling Symphony Society, Inc., serves the residents of our communities by providing excellent orchestral programs that educate, entertain, and enhance the quality of life. Our vision has three main artistic principles: to highlight living American artists of all backgrounds, to create dynamic and relevant concert formats, and to promote the creativity of our musicians.
