POSTPONED: WVSO Music as Great Literature

March 14, 2020 @ 7:30 pm


             CHARLESTON, W.Va. (3/12/20) – Out of an abundance of caution, the West Virginia Symphony Orchestra is postponing its concert this Saturday, March 14, featuring cellist, Zuill Bailey.

            “Based on the governor’s request not to hold events with large crowds because of ongoing concerns surrounding the coronavirus, we decided it was in the best interest of our patrons’ and musicians’ health and safety to postpone the concert,” said WVSO President Joe Tackett.

            The WVSO plans to reschedule the concert at a later date and will announce details once they become available.

            Patrons who have already purchased tickets have two options:

  • Use the tickets to attend the rescheduled concert.

  • Exchange tickets for an upcoming concert by calling the Clay Center Box Office at (304) 561-3570.

    Please direct all questions to Amanda McDonald, Marketing Director, at amcdonald@wvsymphony.org or 304-957-9880.

Other concert-related events also planned for Saturday, including a Master Class with Bailey, a Patron Trip meeting and a pre-concert lecture and reception, also will not be held.

            The WVSO will continue to evaluate this evolving situation. The next scheduled performance of the WV Symphony Orchestra is E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial Movie with Live Orchestra on Saturday, March 28.

The West Virginia Symphony Orchestra is West Virginia’s premier performing arts organization, presenting classical, pops, and chamber-music concerts annually throughout the Mountain State. Currently in its 80th season, the WVSO is a proud member of the community and enriches the region by providing affordable, high-quality concerts, collaborations with West Virginia arts organizations and a nationally award-winning education program.
