Orchestra slated to play at Wesleyan

The West Virginia Symphony Orchestra will appear at West Virginia Wesleyan College at 8 p.m. Friday, Sept. 27 in the Virginia Thomas Law Center for the Performing Arts during Family Weekend. The Orchestra is appearing at the college as part of the Arts Alive! series and is sponsored partly by the West Virginia Humanities Council.

The symphony will perform Beethoven’s “Egmont Overture,” Mendelssohn’s “Symphony No. 4 Italian” and the Saint-Saens’ “Cello Concerto” featuring cello prodigy Daniel Kaler.

The West Virginia Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of conductor Grant Cooper, is West Virginia’s premier performing arts organization, presenting more than 50 concerts annually to audiences throughout the Mountain State. Programs include Capitol Conference Center Symphonic, ZMM Pops and City National Bank Family Discovery Series, performances by the Montclaire String Quartet, collaborations with the Charleston Ballet and other West Virginia arts organizations and a nationally award-winning education program.

The symphony’s home is the world-class Maier Foundation Performance Hall at the Clay Center for the Arts and Sciences in Charleston. This project is being presented with financial assistance from the West Virginia Humanities Council, a state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Any views, findings, conclusions or recommendations do not necessarily represent those of the West Virginia Humanities Council or the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Admission is $10 for adults, $7 for senior citizens and free with a Family Weekend nametag.
