Wheeling Symphony Orchestra Postpones Opening Night Concert and January 2022 Events
(Wheeling, WV) Wheeling Symphony Orchestra (WSO) announces that its Capitol Concert Series opening night concert “Baroque & Beyond” scheduled for Friday, January 21, 2022 has been postponed along with all other January WSO events.
The WSO’s Capitol Concert Series opening night “Baroque and Beyond” Concert scheduled for January 21, 2022 has been postponed due to concerns regarding the precipitous increase in COVID cases in the area. Pre and post-concert events that had been planned for January 21st are also postponed along with all other WSO events scheduled for January including the first installment of WSO on the Go Yoga which was to be held on January 8th. The WSO plans to proceed with February events as scheduled and is working to reschedule the January concert and Yoga event in June 2022.
“We did not think we would be forced to make this type of decision again,” stated Bryan Braunlich, the WSO’s Executive Director. “We are disappointed that our concert and celebration will have to be postponed, but we want to have a celebration that people can safely and comfortably attend. With the steep increase in cases and the timing of this concert, it makes sense for us to pause performances for the month of January.”
Braunlich indicated that the WSO plans to move forward with events scheduled for February including the second installment of the SoundBites Concert Series – “Love Notes” which is set for Sunday, February 13 at Glessner Ballroom and the Capitol Concert Series performance of “Disney in Concert” scheduled for Friday, February 18 at the Capitol Theatre.
Tickets for the January concert will be honored for the rescheduled date. Ticketholders who have questions can contact the WSO Box Office at 304-232-6191.
The WSO on the Go Yoga series will begin with the February installment on Saturday, February 12 at 9:00 am at the Scottish Rite Cathedral Ballroom featuring instructor Dr. Judy Romano and Tom Godfrey, classical guitar. The session with Lindsay Schooler and Flutist Barbara O’Brien will be rescheduled for the second Saturday of June – June 11, 2022.
