Support The Symphony

The costs associated with operating a symphony orchestra are as extraordinary as the benefits it provides. Perusing this website will give you some idea of the scope of the Wheeling Symphony’s offerings, from its seven-concert Subscription Series, to its annual Young People’s Concert Tour, to its Wheeling Symphony Youth Orchestra.

The generosity and support of the Ohio Valley community have been vital to the Wheeling Symphony’s longevity and success. Each year, loyal donors along with new friends step forward to share in the stewardship of this organization. Please review the opportunities below and then consider how you can best show your support for the WSO.
