Legacy of the WSO

Capitol Theatre

It’s the WSO’s 95th birthday! We will start the year-long process of celebrating our beloved community, symphony, and the relationship between the two. We will open our 95th season with a kaleidoscopic concert that honors our past, highlights our present, and looks forward to our incredibly bright future. Eight WSO players will take center stage as soloists for this performance, and the evening’s selections pay tribute to the WSO’s past and to significant historical figures in the Ohio Valley’s musical community.

ATTENTION! with Chris Thile

Capitol Theatre

Our second Masterworks pays tribute to our Appalachian musical roots, as mandolin virtuoso Chris Thile joins us to perform his new concerto ATTENTION!, “a narrative song cycle for extroverted mandolinist and orchestra.” Other works on this concert include In the Beginning by North Carolina-based composer Brittany J. Green, Verdi’s Overture to La Forza del Destino, and Three Dance Episodes from Leonard Bernstein’s On the Town, a tribute to Wheeling native and accomplished conductor Everett Lee, a Black conductor who broke barriers in the 1950’s and worked closely with Bernstein throughout his life.

Nature. Beauty.

Capitol Theatre

In West Virginia, we treasure the fact that our physical landscape has provided so much and is so beautiful to behold. It is a point of pride that in 2020, New River Gorge became the country’s newest national park. This performance pays homage to the landscape of our state with Foggy Moon over the Gorge by West Virginia-based composer Matt Jackfert In addition, we welcome Utah Symphony Concertmaster Madeline Adkins to perform The Maze, a tribute to the Canyonlands National Park in Utah.

95th Anniversary Celebration

Capitol Theatre

The concert kicks off with a new composition from Dr. Matthew Harder, Professor of Music at West Liberty University. Equally exciting, the new Wheeling Symphony Orchestra Community Choir will make its debut on this opening piece. We will then have another world premiere—that’s two on one concert! Jonathan Kolm’s commissioned work will feature WSO Principal Cellist Elisa Kohanski, whose dedication to performing on every continent around the world inspired this composition.
