(Wheeling, WV) Wheeling Symphony Orchestra (WSO) announces a WSO on the GO event, featuring a meet-and-greet with music director finalist candidate, Andrés Franco, and a performance from the Wheeling Symphony Orchestra string quintet.  The event will be held on Thursday, November 15 at 12:00 pm at the Artworks area of Centre Market.  It is free and open to the public.

The music doesn’t stop in Wheeling! Grab a bite to eat from any of the restaurants in Centre Market and enjoy a little midday serenade from the Wheeling Symphony as they entertain you for lunch. Plus, get a chance to meet Music Director Candidate and A Night in Vienna’s Conductor, Andrés Franco. WSO’s string quintet features musicians: Juan Jaramillo (violin), Maureen Colon Gutierrez (violin), Jennifer Gerhard (viola), Elisa Kohanski (cello), and Jeffrey T. Mangone (contrabass)

“After the success of last month’s lunchtime WSO on the GO event, we couldn’t wait to get back out in the community and play another concert for all of our downtown neighbors during lunchtime,” said Bryan Braunlich, General Manager of the WSO.  “We were so thrilled that our friends at Artworks Around Town are hosting us once again in their beautiful space, and are grateful to the Centre Market management for helping make this happen.  We hope that as we continue doing these concerts throughout Wheeling and the Ohio Valley, people will get to know our musicians and join them and the rest of the Wheeling Symphony Orchestra at our season concerts throughout the year.”

Because of the generous support of our sponsors and donors, including title sponsor McKinley Carter Wealth Services, all WSO on the GO concerts will be free to the public to entice and encourage new audiences to become long-time supporters.
