West Virginia Symphony’s “Symphony Sunday”

Posted on: June 5, 2015

The West Virginia Symphony Orchestra will hold its 33rd annual “Symphony Sunday” on June 7 on the lawn of the University of Charleston. The free daylong event, presented by the WVSO’s fundraising organization, features food, games, and music. Performing ensembles include the Kanawha Valley Community Band, Charleston Metro Band, Brass Band of the Tri-State, Mountain State Brass Band, and Kanawha Valley Pipe and Drum Band. Musicians from the West Virginia Youth Symphony will perform, and the day will conclude with an evening concert by the West Virginia Symphony Orchestra, followed by fireworks over the West Virginia State Capitol. The theme of this year’s event is “Greek Serenade”; there will be a children’s costume parade, and guests are welcome to wear togas or other Greek clothing. The WVSO, established in 1939, presents classical, pops, family and chamber-music concerts under Artistic Director Grant Cooper, and offers more than 60 concerts in schools each year.
