CHARLESTON, W.VA. (09/19/18) – The West Virginia Symphony Orchestra (WVSO), kicks off the City National Bank Casual Classics series with two concerts on Oct. 13 in Charleston at 2:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.
Guest artist, Bradley Welch joins the WVSO and Music Director Lawrence Loh for a weekend full of music focused around the hauntingly beautiful instrument, the organ.
“The intimate setting of our Casual Classics concerts will put the spotlight on our musicians, and Beethoven’s 1st Symphony is the perfect kind of piece for this special concert setting,” said Loh. “I’m also excited to welcome Bradley Welch, a brilliant organist, who will be spectacular in the Poulenc Concerto!"
The City National Bank Casual Classics series is in its inaugural season and blossomed out of support for a chamber music-like series in conjunction with the Symphony’s year-long schedule. This came after a very successful performance at First Presbyterian Church in Charleston last season.
Tickets for the two concerts at First Presbyterian Church in Charleston on Oct. 13, start at $20. Tickets are available at wvsymphony.org or by calling 304.561.3570.
The concert in Huntington will be performed on Sunday, Oct. 14, at 3:00 p.m. at Trinity Episcopal Church in Huntington. Tickets are available at wvsymphony.org or by calling 304.987.9876,
This City National Bank Casual Classics series concert is made possible by the generous support of the McGee Foundation, and is presented in loving memory of John & Ruth McGee.
