“These holiday performances are wonderful events throughout the community,” said Bryan Braunlich, General Manager of the WSO. “We are thrilled to return to Centre Market, Oglebay, and Leonardo’s Coffeehouse with our incredible musicians. We are also so grateful to our friends from the Wheeling Symphony Auxiliary for supporting us and promoting us through these family concerts and events. We hope that everyone comes out to listen to some holiday classics that are sure to entertain you and place you in the holiday spirit.”
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. More information is available at wheelingsymphony.com.
