(Wheeling, WV) Wheeling Symphony Orchestra (WSO) announces its annual Young People’s Concert tour, conducted by Music Director André Raphel, featuring guest artist Magic Circle Mime Company and their program Music, Noise, and Silence.  This educational tour reaches more than 4,000 area elementary school students from Ohio, Marshall and Wetzel Counties in West Virginia, Belmont and Jefferson counties in Ohio, and Washington County in Pennsylvania. Performances run from April 3 – 6.

“The Music, Noise and Silence program of Magic Circle Mime Company is brilliant!” says Music Director, André Raphel.  “The selections focus on three spirits. Through the spirits Noise and Silence, students discover how a concert can be disrupted and with the magic of Music can be put back on track. With works by Suppé, Ives, Bach and Grofé it’s a fun program with great humor.”

Because of the impact the Young People’s Concert tour has on our area students, it exemplifies the Wheeling Symphony’s mission to provide orchestral programs that entertain, educate, and enhance the quality of life for our community and its residents.  “This year’s YPC Tour brings music to students throughout the region,” adds André Raphel. “I’m especially happy that it will again take the Wheeling Symphony to play concerts in OH, PA and WV.”

The Young People’s Concert Tour is made possible by the following sponsors: National Endowment for the Arts, Helen J. Prince Foundation, Schenk Charitable Trust, Hess Family Foundation, W.E. Stone Foundation, Sands Charitable Trust, Robert L. and Helen E. Levenson Charitable Trust and Wheeling Hospital.
