Young People's Concerts
One of the WVSO's strongest initiatives, the Young People’s Concert Series reaches over 14,000 students annually. Students from schools and programs across the region and state are bussed in to enjoy these concerts!
Grant Cooper’s very own Song of the Wolf is a clever recasting of the story of the Three Little Pigs, set in West Virginia. The Wolf is an Environmentalist who is trying to save his forest from three pigs!
Peter & the Wolf
Come see this highly interactive version of the traditional tale of Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf—
a wonderful way for young learners to meet the different instruments in an orchestra through the characters profiled throughout the narration.
Sound Painting in colors
A wonderful comparison between the worlds of visual and performing arts for secondary students. A composer, like a visual artist, follows a sequence of creative development steps in creating his work of art. Just as painters mix colors on their palettes, this program explores the infinite number of instruments and melodic combinations that composers mix.
