The West Virginia Symphony Orchestra and Artistic Director Grant Cooper will bring the sounds of the symphony to Fayette County at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Oak Hill High School.
The concert is free and open to the public.
Joining the orchestra for this performance is Astral Artist and violin soloist Kristen Lee. The orchestra will perform Mozart’s Violin Concerto K 218 in D and Mendelssohn’s Symphony No. 3 (Scottish).
“The WVSO looks forward every season to performing throughout the state,” says WVSO President David Gross. “By entering West Virginia communities outside our Charleston home, we hope to not only highlight the orchestra, but the many fantastic cultural resources in our host communities. We are grateful for the enthusiasm of the sponsors, venues and local audiences that allow the WVSO to showcase the best that West Virginia has to offer.
“Our desire is to facilitate a statewide appreciation of the arts, allowing the WVSO to serve its role as the orchestra for all West Virginians.”
Fayette County Schools is hosting a variety of activities during the week prior to the concert, which include master classes by WVSO musicians at three Fayette County schools and visits by the Montclaire String Quartet for students at Fayetteville High School and for all Fayette County fifth-graders.
The WVSO Statewide Touring Program is sponsored in part by the Daywood Foundation, Herscher Foundation, Jacobson Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, and Jim and Keith Straw. The performance and pre-concert activities are also sponsored in part by the Greater Kanawha Valley Foundation and Fayette County Schools with event coordination provided by Coda Mountain Academy of Music in collaboration with Superintendent Keith Butcher and the WVSO.
